We had lots of rain yesterday finally ! It was a gentle rain at first for hours then cleared up for an hour or two and that's when Miggy and I ventured out to get some air. At the same time nature came out to play as well so I popped in to get my camera and took some photos !


                                                Mr  Squirrel eating a peanut !


                                  He looked right at me as I took his picture !


                One of the many Bunny's we have here getting fresh wet grass to munch on !


                              Mrs Dove taking in the sights and sounds !


         One of the many types of butterfly's we get here Collecting pollen after the rains !


                  Lots of activity at Our Country Cove after it rains, all fresh and renewed !

          Then later in the day boy oh boy did we get pelted , heavy rains just pounded us !

So far this morning it is sunny and a bit cooler with a gentle breeze ! but that will be changing to humid by this afternoon !

                                   Until next time, hope you all have a good day !

I love being out after it rains to take pictures. Everything seems so fresh and so relaxed, doesn't it?

Your macro pictures sure are good! Your pictures are all great ~ you can even see that these butterflys have hairy bodies!
Have a great weekend coming up! jo
