I love a good mystery.

Birdman said...

This looks very strange indeed. If it had a yellow tint to it, I'd wager BigBird... a distant cousin. ha! How about a snowbird?????

Saretta said...

Giant leftover Christmas decorations?

valeria said...

A "christmas cocoon"!

Verrrry interesting!!


BTW: All the other border crossings in Wa. are not so huge as the Blaine crossing. That is the main one in the most populous part of the state to the most populous part of British Columbia. MB

A fallen moon!No wonder the nights are so dark!

Oh, cocoa sounds good but I would prolly have herbal tea. Or decaf it was breakfast.

Is it the Festivus onion (I'm making the onion part up, but you probably already guessed that)? I think they give it as a prize to the whiniest after the Airing of the Grievances. But I'm just guessing here.

Oh a mystery! How eggciting!

Are you getting more snow? It's coming down pretty heavy here.

Jilly said...

How incredible and what a lovely photograph of it.

I'm with Malyss-- looks like the moon! And entwined with christmas lights... maybe someone's fixing it before they throw it back into the sky.

Not sure but it looks like something leftover from Christmas.

Did you notice any UFOs a couple of years ago?

Amin said...

It is very interesting photo.

The tree hads a giant pimple

Anya said...

It looks like a BIG snowball
(I have many fantasy .... LOL)

Magpie said...

Not sure, but just to be safe don't feed it after midnight and don't get it wet...gremlins you know.

Jacob said...

Yes, what is a ball of twine doing up in a tree? It is up in a tree, right? I've been up a creek without a paddle and up a tree without a ladder, but this is ridiculous! ;-)

Let us know if you figure this enigma out!

Perhaps it was put together there by a very creative and chic bird?

Tulsa Gentleman said...

I'm not sure what it is but I don't want to be there when it hatches.

Tash said...

Now there is something you don't see every day...or ever.
I like the monochrome-like composition too.

VP said...

I hope that you have an answer for this...

JM said...
