Another Summer Thunderstorm on the Prairie

Last night we had a quick developing thunderstorm move through the area. Crean and I were outside watching a couple of young and spotted White-tailed Deer fawns stroll through the neighborhood as the clouds gathered from the west. Pretty soon watching the cloud formations won out over cavorting fawns and I headed inside to grab the camera.

Crean and I just made it back inside when the wind hit. Soon the Mourning Doves were dodging cottonwood branches as they tacked into the wind trying to head towards the trees. A couple doves shot past the house at right angles to the wind, moving fast wherever the wind took them. A brief shower and then it was done.

Thanks for these excellent pics. I am from India and this tropical country has a excellent habitat of beautiful birds.
