Notice the Seagulls on Each of the Lamps - James River Bridge - Newport News, VA
As you can see from the cloest one, the "bump" on the top of these lights are seagulls. None of them had more than one seagull and there were some empty ones. It was funny to think of them defending their own lamp. Wonder if they sleep up there when it's cold since the light would provide a bit of warmth for the night.
Crossing the James River Bridge in Newport News, VA
The James River Bridge is a four-lane divided highway lift bridge across the James River in the U.S. state of Virginia. It carries US 17, US 258, and State Route 32 across the river near its mouth at Hampton Roads. The bridge connects Newport News on the Virginia Peninsula with Isle of Wight County in the South Hampton Roads region, and is the easternmost such crossing without a tunnel component. When completed in 1928, the 4.5-mile (7 km) bridge was the longest bridge in the world over water. The original two-lane bridge was replaced from 1975 to 1982 with a wider four-lane bridge that could handle increased traffic volumes. In 2005, the bridge carried an annual average daily traffic of about 30,000 vehicles per day. (Source: Wikipedia)
