Well, I have an exam at 8 am tomorrow, so this is a short blog. I just need a quick break from studying, and I can't help but show some of the photos I took earlier this evening. There was one of those tremendous Iowa spring thunderstorms this evening - dark as night, lightning and thunder crashing, torrential rain, and then within 15 minutes, glorious sunshine again! The hens all scattered when the rain came, taking cover under anything handy, or running back to the coop. The goats and sheep went into the barn, the llamas lay down in the rain (crazy animals) and the donkeys watched from the barn door. The ducks had a splash-fest.
Then, as the sun came out, there was an incredible double rainbow, and I had to grab the camera.
As you can see, the bottom rainbow is much more vivid, but both were there, and both were full rainbows. I can't remember the last one I saw that was so vivid!
As the sun came out again, the ducks began to dig through the puddles left by the rain, including the one by the downspout.
They all wanted to get in on the act.
The hens went digging in the compost pile for worms.
And the mosquitoes came out in droves...
So the human went back into the house to keep studying. Yawn....
