Another hot one here in the midwest....

This is from out at the strip pits...I think it is a type of thistle but not positive. I am not wading out in the weeds to find out for sure. I liked the way the evening sun lit it from behind.

I am not positive, but I don't think we hit the three digit area of the thermometer today....the highest I saw was 99.4º. That was hot felt as if we were walking out into an oven when we went to the library. And let me tell you, it was a busy place. It is always busy, but I did wonder if people had come in there to keep cool.

When I ran out to the strip pits, it felt at least ten degrees cooler, and the thermometer on the car said 88º. It was nice to be out and hear the birds singing...and I saw several deer. I did not see the owl time I will either go a bit later or else stay just a bit later. I had to turn the lights on as I left the place, but I still think it would have been better to be out there a little later.
