Summer is naturally the time for thunderstorms and Lake Superior can produce some spectacular ones. These photos were taken a few nights ago around midnight at Whitefish Point, Michigan. As the storm approached no actual bolts could be seen the the clouds were almost constantly lit up.

As the storm neared a few bolts could be seen, but were not completely exposed.

As it passed close to the northeast some amazing strikes really lit up the night sky.

Unfortunately, after just a few of these amazing strikes the sky opened up and it began pouring sending me and my camera gear dashing for the 4Runner.

We've been busy lately with the owl banding. Not too many juveniles yet, but adult saw-whets are moving. Tomorrow I'll be headed for Blissfest for an art show. Hope to see some of you there! Here are some of the birchbark frames we've made recently.

We are about to begin the summer owl banding at WPBO, but I think it is time to start posting to this blog more often. It has been neglected for too long! Lately, we have been busy with a few summer art shows. We just came back from Art for All in Iron Mtn, MI and Art for All in Menominee, MI. That part of the U.P. is very beautiful, and we had a very enjoyable time. We also won a first place award for exellence at Iron Mtn, and Best Visiting Artist award at Menominee. Thanks very much to those who liked our work!

If you are interested in coming to see our booth, there are three more shows this summer:
BlissFest- Bliss, MI July 8-10
Outback Art Show- Marquette, MI July 30-31
Blueberry Festival- Paradise, MI August 19-21

Or... you can come and visit us at Whitefish Point, where we are back on a night schedule banding owls. For details about this, please contact WPBO:

Traveling from Iron Mtn to Menominee, MI. Not sure if this raccoon is comfortable or stuck!
We had to go back and get a picture of this- along a random county road.
