The sun has been out, and then suddenly, this storm - WOW, I just saw lightening and immediately there was a thunder clap that almost stopped my heart. It was CLOSE. I love this. (I hope we live through it.)
Anyway, I just had to post while the storm was going on. So exciting!
Here are some photos from yesterday. More hummingbirds - the Rufous did well feeding, as well as the male Black-chinned, but the female kept sticking it's beak over and under and around the hole in the middle of the yellow plastic flower. It even hopped on top of the feeder and flew under, testing the underside with it's beak. It always finally made it to the food, though. I thought the feeder was leaking through all the seams at first, but no, she was just looking in all the wrong places.
They are so beautiful and entertaining, I love taking photos of hummingbirds! :)
And during our evening drive, Hazel and I had a nice surprise and saw a horse family by the lake. A stallion, mare, yearling and baby. We were losing the light, so these are pretty flat, colorwise, and only these photos turned out at all. Hopefully more horses will be back. With all the rain, we have lots of grasses and ground cover for them to eat.

I can't believe it, but it's still raining with thunder and lightening. So, I'm going to Publish this and go back to enjoying the light show and all the noise.
From Me and Katie, have a great Friday, everyone! :)
