  1. 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. πŸ˜€ Great photo here.

  2. 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.

    • I remember reading about that at one point and looked it up again. Leprosy is what they say.

  3. Dear Timothy,
    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

  4. 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.

  5. 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 πŸ’–πŸ’–

  6. 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.

      • 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.
