Rain Relief

Florida, like most of the nation, is experiencing major drought. The rainy season is upon us and the afternoon thunderstorms are going to start bringing welcome relief. But we are going to need one major rainy season to put us back on track.

A few recent rains have brought life back to my backyard; both plant and animal. The lizards are always around, but I haven't seen a toad since last rainy season. This guy was a welcome sight. I photographed him with the natural light that was nicely diffused by the rain clouds.

This fella was in the shade where it was not bright enough to shoot at a decent shutter speed. So I handheld my SB-800 flash out to the left side to add some nice directional light.

Keep that rain coming!
