A few of the 4th of July fireworks from my driveway. Many of my neighbors were setting them off.
Lots of rainbows during the summer rains.
I was standing under the bismark palm tree trying to get some storm shots in the backyard and almost ran into the above. A harmless spiny orb, very common here but I really wouldn’t want to have to pull him out of my hair.
The sun was trying to peek out after a storm.
Dark clouds were swirling in the backyard right before dark.
Lightning shots taken with my phone in the backyard.
Standing on the Safety Harbor fishing pier, I could see a storm over my neighborhood across the bay.
I’m always looking up in the yard during the rainy season.If I hear thunder on one side of the house and the sun is out on the other, I always run outside with my phone hoping to see a rainbow.
I caught a quick glimpse of a black bellied whistling duck family. They were passing through under the boardwalk and headed into the swamp. They paused for a few minutes and I snapped the above. The babies are so cute. They look like little bumble bees.
