Cows, coons & cobras

Just some miscellaneous photos I took today.


It's a cow. The farmers often let their cows out in the corn fields after the harvest. The cows nom on the corn the combines missed.



Raccoon face. I tossed the raccoon some animal crackers and took pictures, but none of them came out.



This is (I think) an RC-135S "Cobra Ball" Measurement And Signal Intelligence (MASINT) aircraft. They are designed to monitor ballistic missiles at long range. There are only 3 of these aircraft in service, all stationed at Offutt AFB. This particular one passed very close overhead this afternoon.



An old sign on a one-lane bridge near here. It was knocked over who knows how long ago. I think it's supposed to say "CAP [something] TONS". Guess we'll never know how much that old bridge can carry. It appears one of the farmers around here has some equipment that is slightly too big for the bridge, because the railings and all the metal signs near it have been knocked down or removed. Only the flexible plastic markers are still there.
