The Catawba Rhododendron blooms have faded for the summer, but the mountain laurel exploded in bloom. The bumblebees follow the blooms and allowed some very up close photography as they gathered nectar and pollen in the early morning cool.
The weather conspired to give us a favorite sunrise treat – the valley fog below us forming a soft blanket of clouds below the mountain peaks. As the day progressed, the rumble of thunder echoed in the distance as storms built in the distance. As has happened for the last several days, we had a couple of thunderstorms pass over us, but they dropped only minimal rain.
So enjoy today’s variety of photographs.
