"Does it say 'Hope'? Or 'Nope'?" Wednesday afternoon's sunny-sweaty walkabout, awaiting carry-out 🦬 at Ted's Montana Grill in Gaithersburg, finds window art by @lwart = Luther Wright = "Louie Wri" in a tony zone of shops. An enthusiastic birder named Kofi, armed with new Nikon D6 and 200-500mm long lens, monitors an artificial pond. He points out a juvenile Great Blue Heron and shares recent pics. A cut-through behind tennis courts offers escape from a fancy 'hood. A cicada lands on a pink shirt and photobombs the scratched-thumb "Best Blood" after a brushy downhill scramble. Oops!
