Mercury transit

Mercury transit

I tried a few shots from my deck before going to work on this Thursday morning, to catch Mercury as it started its transit across the sun.  Too many trees to get a clean photo, though, so I took my camera with me to work.  I took this photo from the parking lot before walking into work.  Mercury is the small dot in the lower left of the sun.  The dark area near the center is a sunspot.
