What an unusual cloud!
That’s what I thought. Thanks, Susan.
It took me a minute to see it, but now I can’t unsee the hat-wearing possum. It almost looks like Remy from the movie, “Ratatouille.” lol. Clouds are fascinating in their shapes. 😀 Great photo here.
Thanks, Lucy. It’s true that once you see it you can’t unsee it.
That is such an interesting take
Thanks, PBS. Clouds can take on some really interesting shapes.
A window view from the airplane seat?
Vie from the levee. Thanks, David.
It’s happy Friday! Ciao Simona.
…and a baby elephant too!!!!
Wow! You even get clouds to pose for you!
True. Laurie saw a woodpecker. Thanks, Marina.
A ha ha…. now I see it too!!!!
Oh wow. I see it. I also see this looks like a tornado! Great pic and the quote this is based on is one I use all the time !
You are good at dealing with devily ducks in the details. Thanks, Shey.
Being from East Texas, I have a lot (too much in fact) experience with Possums.
I see possum stew on the menu.
(And yes, I have had that delicacy AND Armadillo chili–not proud of it, but there ya go.)
Hi Lance. We don’t have those mopey, mean monothelite marsupials up hear. Chili con Armadillo carne? I heard you have to be careful eating armadillo because you can get Mycobacterium leprae (leprosy) from eating Armadillo meat.
‘Leprosy’ you say?
That explains this weird persistent rash I have.
I remember reading about that at one point and looked it up again. Leprosy is what they say.
A quacking duck, no less!
I love that we see what we see. Fun stuff.
How people sees things differently is fascinating. Thanks, Dale.
‘Tis indeed! Makes life all the more “inneresteing” 😉
what a great picture. We just see a cloud and fine shades of blue and grey.
It’s interesting that clouds were seen for a long time as projection screens for our imagination.
Wishing you an easy weekend

Thanks, Fab Four of Cley. Clouds play off all of our emotions and imaginations. Clouds can be anything we can think of or they can simply be clouds.
I just read about Beaufort and the beginning of looking at clouds more systematically. That was quite a step from seeing everything in the shapes of the clouds to categorize clouds like we do it today.
All the best

What a beautiful convection cell you caught there Tim. It does look a bit like a duck, or maybe Flipper the dolphin?
Thanks, Lavinia. It was building up way to the south. A dolphin works.
I think I see the duck! It’s mostly the head, bill on the right?
The upper bill becomes the peak of the possum’s cap?
Still liking from one blog, commenting from another. Good old WP.
Thanks, Resa. You cover all the based that way.
Bases that is, My typing is really going down the typing tubes.
I knew what you meant!
Tim, a great capture of an amazing cloud formation!
I printed it out to stare at tonight on my ceiling. I’m sure there’s more I’m not seeing lying down… I need a zen moment lol.. thanks 💖💖
Hi Cindy. Check your email. I sent you something to better your zen.
oh aren’t you sweet thank you … will do!💖💖💖💖
Just needs a line of razor sharp teeth and it would be a perfect match.
True. Thanks, Brian.
I remember my sister closest in age to me and I lying on our backs in the yard looking for shapes in the clouds. Usually, we saw something different. My husband and I cloud watch too, but sitting in chairs.
If I squint just right, I think I can see a possum in you picture.
Thanks, KY. I’m sure you are well aquanted with possums.
Used to be, yes, before I moved to the city. In a way the are cute, but have some gross habits, which I won’t detail here…might cause some to lose their lunch.
No wonder I’m a cloud fan!! Great shot Tim …
