Signs of Summer!

The middle of July … warmth … thunderstorms … wild flowers. The -30F temperatures of January seem like a fleeting memory. Perhaps that extreme cold never happened! Here are three photographs I took over the past few days that define summer!

Thunderheads! (The site location is Stoney Point, and this fisherman’s shack is one of the most photographed sites on the North Shore. While watching thunderheads scream by out on Lake Superior, I knew I needed to combine the two images into one photograph)

Turk’s Cap Lily’s (Went birding the other morning … thick fog. Who cares?!)

Sparrow Hawk / American Kestrel (Got lucky. Heard this bird screaming, and managed to find some undergrowth in which to hide. Kestrels spook very easily)
