Things Are Looking Up
They made me hunger for more clouds. As I went over the Kennebec River I could see that the clouds from there were also prime candidates for a photo shoot. However, stopping in traffic wasn't an option, and neither was parking and walking back with this cast on my foot. So I kept driving, all the while thinking "Rats, I want those clouds". But as I got off that 4 lane bridge and started for the next narrow bridge to the islands, "what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a big old osprey on a wire quite near." I had to cross that bridge five times before I could avoid traffic and stop the car on the bridge and get a picture. As I pulled away after getting the shot, I saw that the car ahead of me was making a u-turn like I did, and the ones that had just come up behind me were driving really slowly and had stopped on the bridge also. You know you are in Maine when a bird can cause a traffic jam in a town of 500. But it's justified, he is back a couple of days early from Jamaica. We're happy to see him. Now for his lady friend's return!
