      Heh, it is an illusion of sorts. They're just standing by the edge of a pond. The sky is reflecting off of the water perfectly. The rock is actually in the water, not floating in air. The water so still that I guess it created a perfect reflection with the sky! :p

      Yeah, we've had other people ask the same thing! It looks like a rock is flying in the air! The husband and I are huge animal lovers, we'd never hurt a critter. :)

      Oh, I was hoping it was a UFO. :-) Haven't seen a raccoon like that. In fact, we've never seen a raccoon in or around the yard.

      You morons, it's no revlection, it's the real sky. And the rock isn't floating, it's beeing caried by the incect that flies above it. (the flying ant can carrie up to 70x its own weight) I guess this means bad news for the racoon after all.

      The eye sees what the brain tells it to see.... a lesson in there somewhere! Amazing shot, anyway.

      It took me so long to work out what was going on! It's like one of those pictures that could either be a horse, or an old lady's face.

      What an awesome picture. It took me aminute to realize the sky was a reflection and not a big rock about to crush the raccoon and that the raccoons are coming up the hill and not going down. The illusion is 100% awesome. Looking at the rock between the two raccoons is what makes it look either way.
