Taken first thing in the morning as the snows rise out of Bombay Hook Marsh, and head off in their daily serch for food.

Last nights electrical storm. I set out about an hour or so before the storm hit and climbed on the roof to try and capture some lightning bolts in the nights sky. Unfortunately i was unable to get any decent shots from the roof. Everything seemed to be going off inside the clouds. Later last night when the rain began to fall i started seeing good flashes of lightning. Since going back on the roof was out of the question, i decided to just sit on the porch and wait for a strike. I ended up getting a couple. This one seemed to be worth posting.

Summer is in full swing now, and one of the things i look forward to the most is the return of the humming birds. These tiny fliers are amazing to watch. From the females frantically feeding on nectar flowers. To the males defending flowers and feeders. The colors of these little birds is no less than stunning when the light hits the throat of the males, and allows you to see how they got their name.
