Early AM this day was great by one heck of a storm: Rain, cloud to cloud lightning, hail and shear winds. In its path a lot of folks plants and flowers took a beating, along with many tress and power lines, but the little stripe up the road seemed to fair fairly well. I am glad since this Indiana Blanket flower has a relatively short life span I had zero captures of them this year. So here is an Indian Blanket after the storm.
Since we suffered through a horrific drought last year I welcome the rain. On a personal note though, I would like to see a few hours of sunshine here and there till the true dog days of summer decides to settle in. Since I have no sway over the weather, I guess I will have to deal with the lack of rays. So today I headed out with The Bride to look for a few photo ops. Below are a few from the day.
I used my Canon Powershot SX10is is pursuit of some photo-therapy on this lazy, rainy day.
Heading home today I seized the moment and I stopped by one of my favorite places to take snaps of wildflowers. Below is a Bumblebee in an Indian Blanket.
