It has been really hot but Cleo and Cloe love it! It doesn’t make sense to me since they have fur coats but they like to lay out in their enclosure or on the warm concrete floor in the garage all day. At night, they are forced to endure air conditioning 🙂
I’ve captured very few monsoon clouds this summer because we’ve been gone so much but better late than never! Here’s one from night before last. I have several wonderful saguaros in my yard so I positioned myself under one. I got out a little too late but managed to catch a little last light.
We had a fantastic and VERY loud storm last night! It produced more lightening than I’d seen in a very long time and we ended up with more than 1 1/4 inches of rain which was extremely welcomed. I should be showing a photo of lightening today but instead I’m sharing another shot of flowers in the rain. I don’t have an ID for this shrub yet but the flowers sure were pretty!

We had quite a bit of rain during our Colorado road trip. Instead of running for cover, though, I continue to shoot because the light can be great! If you look back at my Snowshoe Hare post, you’ll notice the hares are wet and the flower colors are popping. In this image, I think the rain adds to the story of how much this area has deteriorated.
