This was a surprising sight given how warm it has been, but the geese know best!

Thunderclouds Over Michigan

Continuing the theme of dramatic weather, we’ve had yet more storms. Here are a couple pictures at long focal lengths of approaching thunderclouds from a couple of days ago. Note in one there’s a helicopter conveniently dwarfed by a cloud mass that’s many miles beyond it. In the first photo you can see some birds that look as if they’ll be swallowed by the massive cumulonimbus. It’s deceiving because I’m sure this cloud was at least ten miles away.

Storms can be scary, but this has also been exciting. These kinds of systems are much more common in places that maintain higher temperatures throughout the year, like where I grew up in Texas.

Birds Not Exactly of a Feather

Here’s a study in contrast :). First, two osprey hunting for fish in the Grand River that runs through Grand Rapids, Michigan. Second, a couple more shots of humming birds.

Taken at my in-laws’ house.  The humming bird is slightly out of focus, but close enough! 🙂

Silhouette – Bird Howling at Moon :)

Clearly this bird is not howling, but it looks like it might be! This is very heavily cropped. I don’t have a lens that can capture this at a higher resolution, but I wanted to share.

Same moon cycle later in July, same tree, different branch, different time of day (and no bird).
