We were out by the creek chasing water skippers when all of a sudden Lisa burst into tree climbing mode!
She was up in the blink of an eye, bright eyed and bushy tailed she reached the highest part of the tree before my camera powered on.
You can hear how much the local birds didn’t like this feat of strength.
Here are the water skippers, which we did not catch. They are like turbo rockets on the surface of the water.
It had been so hot and dry for quite some time. I was so glad that it was finally raining when all of a sudden… BOOM ZAP POW! Straight outta the sky came the lightning followed by rolling THUNDER!
It scared our cats a bit, they stared around all wide eyed and stayed low to the ground. The dogs in the neighborhood on the other hand were going off like car alarms! Poor doggies.
There was one giant bolt that struck right outside our window, but I had stopped recording because of course I had to watch star trek… ahem… but all the same I feel happy about this footage I captured ^_^
