Sunrise 7:19: Breakfast - or dinner?

When you're nocturnal, is the last meal you eat before turning in breakfast or dinner?
That's what the female Dawn Jogger wondered when she surprised a group of three racoons on the Stanford campus this morning not far more the main quad. Two descended from a tree and ambled over to the nearest lawn to forage for grubs. The third was not as comfortable with the female DJ's presence and came down one tree and went right up the other. It was still fairly dark, so the dark form of the racoon hardly shows against the tree trunk. Look hard for two glowing eyes near the center of the picture.

When you look at the larger photo, Mr/Ms Racoon shows up pretty well... cute!
