Cat on a Wire

My husband and I were driving downtown one stormy afternoon. We pulled up to the stoplight and I happened to catch sight of this amazing cloud cat on a wire. I couldn't believe my eyes. I had my camera out as always and clicked her picture through the windshield. I only had an instant, then the light turned green and she was gone. I'm not sure what she was after--perhaps that's a mouse creeping along the wire there to the left? What do you think?


As you may guess from the above photo, I was astonished to see this cloud so well formed and actually sitting on the telephone wire. This is the original, untouched photo. It was one of those miraculous moments when I happened to be at the right place at the right time.

What a purfect placement of a cloud!
We had some amazing clouds today, and I while I was taking pictures I remarked to my husband that I hate when wires get in the way, well you certainly solved that problem. It's an awesome cloud painting!

Now I've heard of birds on a wire and cat on a hot tin roof... I think this little one just wanted to fly like a bird and found itself on this high wire. Thanks for the smiles :-D
Blessings to you and yours. Love and Light, Nina P.
