Today has been like any other day lately..hot and very humid. We did have a chance of storms last night but in rolled a little thunder and lightning and the show was over before any rain hit the ground. Tonight looked like we were going to get more of the same, a little thunder in the distance and some lightning flashing across the sky. Once again no rain well, but what appeared in the sky was just breathtaking.
I had to get a better look..
And maybe a little bit closer still…
The backyard was just covered in dragonflies tonight too. You can see a few of them on the left side of the picture above. They almost look like birds in the distance.
On the way back in I noticed how bright the moon was and took one parting shot before heading back in..away from the mosquitoes that sounded like small airplanes around my head!
“We can never have enough of nature. We must be refreshed by the sight of inexhaustible vigor, vast and titanic features, the sea-coast with its wrecks, the wilderness with its living and its decaying trees, the thunder-cloud, and the rain.” ~ Henry David Thoreau
