SkyWatch, 8-21-08


Storm cloud looking east from my back deck. We don't get many storms from the east but this storm was determined, and it got a little rowdy here until after it had passed over the other day.

A little bit of sky is showing behind this little hummer. He/she seemed to be enjoying the little misting of rain.

Not much sky showing here either but it was all gray and cloudy. My morning glories were enjoying a little respite from the heat.

There are loads more SkyWatch photos for you to enjoy if you'd like to go see.

Nice catch for SWF! In the sky, there is no distinction of east and west; people create distinctions out of their own minds and then beleive them to be true. Mine’s up too hope you can drop by… Happy SWF!

Your photos are very good. I wish we could get some of your drizzle.

The hummingbird is a female or a very young juvenile. If it was a male the throat would be red. It looks like a Ruby-throated Hummingbird.

Is the weather part of that tropical storm Fay? Or are you too far west to be affected by that one?

Nice shot of the hummingbird. They always seem to be quickly on their way to the next source of nectar in my yard, never staying still long enough for me to properly focus my camera.

Nice post! I LOVE morning glories, and the hummingbird is so close!

When we get storms from the east, they're the worst. The weather comes through from the west, then bounces off the mountain and comes back with a FURY. I think storms reserve their worst when coming from the east.

I adore the welcome of your field of sunflowers.
Nice gentle landscape and such a pretty little Hummer. I am especially fond of his/her perch.
