Random Friday Stuff: Lightning, Rainbows, Animal Parts, and Baby Binkies

Crazy-intense storm last night.  I haven’t ever heard or seen so much intense lightning directly over the top of us.  I was seconds away from ordering everyone into the basement.  I thought for sure we were going to take a hit.  Super loud sizzle and cracking sounds followed by a simultaneous huge flash and BOOM!

I played around with the continuous shot setting on my camera and managed to capture one strike (far away) while picking up my daughter earlier in the afternoon.

Driving to work a couple of weeks ago I saw this beam of light coming through the clouds.  It looked ten times as intense as the photo shows.

Caught a rainbow and some cool skies while out walking the dog.

I find animal legs on my runs.

Last night, the frog

The occasional critter that is missing legs.

And baby binkies.

What will we find next?

  1. Cool photos. The weather can be pretty wicked but in between the photo opps are great!

    That rabbit looks like it went sky-diving without its wabbit pawachute.

    Ah, the law of nature. It’s always a treat finding an adult deer carcass where I run. Very reassuring knowing I’m on the turf of something that can bring down a mule deer.
