wind turbine raccoon sees you

… and is unimpressed.

racoon at ripley

We encountered a raccoon last night. It was somewhat surprised to see us. Almost as much as we were to find it on top of the steps to a wind turbine.

Ripley Wind Farm

I drove through Suncor/Acciona‘s Ripley wind farm the other night. They’re just constructing, but this summer has been almost perfect weather for building (dry, still — which kind of sucks for farmers and those of us with wind farms nearby, but it’s an ill calm …).

I don’t usually take pictures of parked or machines under construction, but these Enercons are quite something.
