May 2016

A double rainbow after a spring shower passed Sioux Valley Baptist Church in rural Moody County.
 May passed in a blink of an eye this time around.  I spent a lot of time looking for migrating birds as well as wildflowers and storm clouds.  Here are 12 of my favorites from the month.  Hope you enjoy. Click on an image for a larger file to view and thanks for checking in!

A family of geese cruising the creek on backside of Great Plains Zoo in Sioux Falls.

Red Columbine in bloom at the Dells of the Big Sioux.

A great horned owl from across the canyon of the Dells.

I happened to be snapping pics when it decided to find a new roost.

Small wildflowers (Wood Sorrel possibly) at the Dells.

A Ruby-throated Hummingbird at the Dells.

Another Ruby-throated Hummer in the leaves at Newton Hills State Park.

Prairie Smoke at the Dells.

Immanual Lutheran of northeast Douglas County after a storm system moved through.

St. John's (also called Hillside Church) just a few miles further west of Immanuel on the same evening.

I drove back to Immanual for this last parting shot of the retreating storm.  The sky was unreal.
