40 Minutes of Sun

This holiday weekend, the weather has been horrible!  Today, especially.  Starting last night, we had thunder and lightning and heavy rain.  It's been a very dark day overall.

Do you consider the sun to be out when the sky is bright?  Or are actual shadows a requirement?  My husband and I actually got into an argument about whether or not the sky was gray or blue!  Then, I saw shadows and sunshine and ran for the door!

I drove over to the Massachusetts Horticultural Society at Elm Bank Reservation in Wellesley to see if any butterflies might come out with the sun.   I try to be very careful with my camera and avoid rapid temperature changes, but it did fog up today.

It was the only butterfly I saw at Elm Bank!

 Red-Tailed Hawk

This hawk looked like it was trying to dry its wings out after the last heavy rainfall.

The dark clouds gathered again, and another heavy rain fell as I drove home.  It's still raining now.  UGH!
