It rained today. That means heavy cloud cover -- and that, of course, means Cloud Creatures. I guess the conditions that promote the formation of clouds, also attracts them. Either that, or there is something in clouds they want. Anyway, I was rewarded with a few really interesting images of CCs in action. Take a gander at this one -- it's almost apocalyptically dramatic, yet beautiful:

I hope it was just curious.
