Got lighting? There was six beaver in the river at Beaver Point tonight.
Jupiter’s moons were in a formation I had not seen before. When I looked at the image on my camera’s screen at 5:00 am I thought I was moving the camera and getting a double image of the moons, but since Jupiter is round, the moons were really sitting side by side.
The moon through a thin layer of clouds.

Some of these images are spectacular! And I’m happy to see the beavers! 🙂
Thanks, Susan. I’ve never seen so many. They seemed to be celebrating the river being higher. They were more making noise, but I didn’t see them.
Stunning photography, Tim.
Most welcome, Tim.
The pictures of the beavers are lovely, Timothy. I have never seen one in real life.
Thanks, Roberta. They were almost wiped out in the 18th and 19th centuries.
That is so sad, Timothy. I am very fond of wildlife. We are going to a game farm for this upcoming weekend.
I know a spot near Antwerp where there are a lot of beaver traces on trees and even trees that went down but I did’nt see the beavers yet.
They can be skittish. Thanks, Rudi.
The lighting strike pictures look so amazing… nature never fails to amaze us..
Amazing photographs of the lightning. I gave up trying to shoot the lightning during a thunderstorm. I guess the lightning flashes are way faster in this part of the world… 😉
There’s a couple of different ways to photograph lighting. One way is reatalively easty, you need a tripod and bulb setting. The other is being as quick as lighting on the shutter, and getting one or two shots out of a whole lot of shots. Thanks, Herman.
WOW. Beavers today. Lovely.
Wow, tolle Himmelsbilder und die Biber super fotografiert!
Thanks, einfachtilda. The beavers were really active.
Oh, WOW, Tim!!!! Spectacular lightning, beavers, amazing skies and Jupiter’s moons…. huge WOWs!!!! Love your title.
Thanks, Marina. I was surprised to see so many beaver. A lot of waiting and missed tryies to get the lighting.
Oh, I bet… but so worth it!!!!
Exciting catches on the lightning Tim. I’ve never been lucky enough to capture a bolt like those you did. You mentioned hearing more beavers. Were you hearing them rustling around or were they verbalizing? I guess I’ve never thought about beaver talk…
The were squeaking and what sounded like moaning. Thanks, Maj & Sher.
Very impressive lightning shots!
Wow! Tim! You are on fiah! to capture the lightening, Saturn’s moons, those cute beavers… My goodness.
These are fantastic images, Tim, especially the lightning and rainbow. I enjoy seeing the beauty in your area through your lens.
Your skyscapes took my breath away! Wow, Tim!! The lightning …. oh my goodness! Jupiter and its moons ….. say what? Just incredible beauty! We don’t have skies like yours. Thank you!
You are welcome, AmyRose. Thanks for dropping by. The Jupeter moons were a real suprise.
Agreed about the Jupiter moons. I’ve never seen anything quite like that photo.
You got some great beaver shots, Tim. They don’t exactly stand still and pose. They’re busy you know?
Jupiter’s moons look so cool!
And your moon shot! Wow. Thank you!
Hi Resa. The beavers often sit in the water and munch on their willows. This bunch was very active.
Beavers were brought back to the San Pedro river after being banished. Have only seen their handiwork. Lightening in the rainbow, wow! Are you sure that moon isn’t a leftover croissant?
Could be on the moon. I hope you get to see some beavers. Thanks, Cheyanne.
wow what a gift to see 6 beavers Tim! And that moon!
A beaver day for sure. Thanks, Cindy.
That might be the angriest rainbow I’ve ever seen. Spectacular lightning photos ❤
It was a feisty one. Thanks, Tristan.
stunning lightening photos there Tim! We were pounded with a nasty storm last weekend – lightening sheered of a massive tree in our woods – thankfully no fires, but it took out two other large trees as it came crashing down – as if I didn’t have enough work to do ugh.
Are you going to do a chainsaw massacre on the downed trees? Make sure your chainsaw is from Texas, and you hit the trees with a sledgehammer before you saw them up. Thanks, Brian.
They have to be dealt with as they are so big they crossed over my haunted trail path twice. Will be getting the massacre tomorrow although, not sure what kind of trees you have down there, but I am hoping I don’t have to sledge them first ha!
The few we have are feisty.
Spectacular photos… once again my friend!
And those beavers… pretty darn cool.
We had one of our boat lines chewed… we think it was a muskrat. I see them by our boat sometimes.
Have a wonderful weekend Tim… and thank you always for your amazing pictures!
We have muskrats, also. They are rats compared to the beavers. Thanks, Nancy.
Love Beavers Tim… and those Moons around Jupiter wow… did I count 4… I didnt know until today that there were at least 80 moons around the planet… 🙂
As to that lightning and vertical rainbow…. MAGIC… ❤
Thanks, Suse. Yep. Lots of moons around Jupiter. Saturn has around 60 plus. A lot of the moons are astoriods, but some of those asteroids spinn themselves into balls and become real moons.
That rainbow with the lightening strike is stunning.
Amazing skies! And that lightning wow! Super photography Tim …
