I took Rion for a walk before it got too warm this morning. As I took this photo with my camera phone, a hummingbird flew up to investigate (probably because of my red shirt) then turned to fly away.
This panorama is a combination of several photos taken today with my Moto X phone camera. Google Photos stitched them together to make a panorama. I find it amazing that it made the panorama without me telling it to do so. Click on the photo to get a larger image.
For a short while the sun broke through this morning, allowing Rion to do his favorite morning activity (besides eating) of basking in the sunlight. We have all been sulking a bit because there has been so little sunshine recently. According to the weather station at the Air Force Academy, which closely resembles our micro-clime, we have had 9.7 inches of rain this May. The average amount to date is 0.32 inches.
A local weather forecaster explains that yes, we are having a very wet May, especially on the west side of Colorado Springs. In the link below, he explains how something called the Pacific Decadal Oscillation is leading to all this moisture.Source: May…From Drought to Deluge
