    speaking of big globes (that was an AC/DC song, wasn't it?) -- the Ledyard bridge, linking Norwich VT and Hanover NH, (arguably) has the biggest globes of them all.

    I thought Eartha was the biggest globe at 41ft. Delorme Mapping in Yarmouth Maine now owned by Garmin. David Delorme sold it. I watched part of it being built when they moved to that new location off i95.. If you havent seen it-its worth looking it up.. My exwife & sister worked there for many of years

    Nature strikes again -- or --
    what the heck is this thing?

    This has appeared on one of our windows on the first floor.
    Mind you, I have two degrees nominally in Biology, but I have no idea what this is.

    ow1t6mczobd2.jpg


    The color and fine structure make me think it's either an egg mass of some sort, or a critter of some sort -- or maybe it's just bird droppings(?).
    The better photo gives no sense of scale. I tried to add a ruler for scale, but I had trouble with focus (depth of field). This photo is inverted relative to the one above.

    1eezl0jx5pd7.jpg

    Whatever it is, it's about 13 mm/0.5 inch long.

    Anyone have any idea what this is?
