Happy July 4th to everyone!
The first real storms of the year moved through this afternoons and evening. Got to shoot a wall cloud and then later I caught some lightning.
Our Mexican plum trees are absolutely loaded with blooms. Now if we could just find some morels I would feel like spring was finally here.
I have been wanting to get a shot of one of our Bluejays but they are quick to leave as soon as the door is opened. Had to get this shot through the kitchen screen.
While I was at it I spotted one of our male Cardinals waiting his turn behind all the Redwing Blackbirds and Starlings.
I got to witness my first sun pillar this evening. I had to darken this shot a little bit to bring out the pillar but it was very easily seen with the naked eye.
