Digging a hole for others

graver_en_grop

There is a saying in Swedish that goes “He who digs a hole for others, often falls in it himself”, meaning something like “the biter gets bitten”. Well, these guys were digging a hole for others outside our house yesterday. I don´t think they fell into it yet, since they put up a sturdy fence around it afterwards, but there is still time for it to happen. Because of course they didn´t finish the job.

You´ve gotta love that claw, though.
