We made it home just before the skies opened up this afternoon.

A half inch of rain in twenty minutes – it was pouring!

As the rain was coming down, I watched this Great Blue Heron hunker down in the field, seemingly totally out of place there. It’s amazing how waterfowl know when to exit the water; geese pull off the lakes, herons walk off the shores, ducks flee to solid ground.

It’s like they sense the severe storms coming in, and understand that the water is dangerous if struck by lightning.

Instinct is an incredible thing.
