|Every walk gives something up that wasn't there the day before|
Yesterday was like that with a better than expected reward.
The air wasn't cool but it was better than 'feels like 111' so off to the lake.
|There were lots of lightning flashes in this cell but I couldn't catch one|
|A very ragged osprey.|
The lightning was getting close and I thought it might be time to head back to the Turtle, but it was very difficult to leave. The rain was literally passing right in front of me and not touching me. The sound of it pounding down on the water sounded like a waterfall, as I stood there, listening and dry.
Finally one close shot of bolt of light to the system hit and it really was time to be somewhere else. With a few looks back.
|Can you hear it?|
There really wasn't a lot of rain on land around here. Glancing up from my book, the sun was blaring in a sky still roiling with black clouds. And then, as it has ever since I heard it years ago, the voice of that little girl was in my ear. "You know what happens when it rains? Rainbows!" Just a glance toward the lake and I was grabbing my camera and heading out in the barest of sprinkles.
|If you see this light and a rainbow and there is a body of water near?|
Start walking fast.
|It got brighter and brighter. That is when I started running|
|And it was worth it|
|The crazy ass bird stayed throughout the storm and shine|
|A cardinal couple had sought shelter beneath a hedge,|
giving one last surprise of the day
