This evening, we were surprised by a tree frog clinging to one of our living room windows. It stayed for about an hour, but eventually climbed up the window and disappeared. Tree frogs are common here, and part of the nightly Summer symphony. They are rarely bothersome. The 1st photo is about twice the size of the actual frog. The 2nd photo includes my hand, for scale of the frog's size.

Today, we had more rain off and on...but mostly on. There was a break in the rain while we were dining. There were beautiful puffy clouds for a little while, before the rain started again. My husband drove us today, so I got to play with taking photos of the raindrops on the windshield.

Today, we had rain off and on through out the day. I was a companion and passenger today, with my husband. This makes for fun photo taking in the car, of the rain on the windshield and blurred trees in the background. We stopped in Carytown for lunch, but parked in the neighborhood behind it, where there were many beautiful wet flowers.

This afternoon, we headed to Hampton, VA to eat seafood. Afterwards, we went to the near by Buckroe Beach, to let our daughter play in the sand. There were seagulls perched on the boardwalk lights and power lines.

Tonight, after dinner with my parents, a storm started. I was riding with them, so I took advantage of their back seat sunroof and windshield. Unfortunately, I wasn't able to capture any great photos of the lightning, but I was able to get a few nice photos of the street lights through the raindrop covered windows.

Today, we went to the Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens to see the plants, and the new butterfly house.
These flowers have grown between an emergency exit gate. They were covered in ants.

While we were traveling from Philadelphia, PA to Richmond, VA, the clouds were beautiful and fluffy. I took photos of these amazing clouds while riding in the car. Some of them come out as a complete surprise, as photographing while not looking at my view finder (camera pointed up at the sky and sun) and in a moving car is difficult.
