I posted something from this grouping a few years back, and only today did I realize that I had missed a tiny gem in this shot. There is a bird in the upper left of this photo. I love it. I had never seen it before.
Funny how we can miss the most serendipitous details sometimes!
It was such a lovely morning, I had to run out and take photos. My battery was dying and I had to take it out after each shot and shake it to see if I could get just one more. Ü I was so happy with all of them, I couldn't choose just one for Sky Watch.

And I'm really excited for the flowers. These are Siberian Iris from last summer, just as the sun was setting. For about a minute, the sun broke through some heavy cloud cover and lit them up so beautifully. I felt really lucky to be taking the photos when that happened. You can't plan everything. Sometimes, things just work out right.
