Cotton puff clouds highlight Ole Glory's waves

I was watching the sky today as we moved around the city on chores.  This shot was while I was at Kinsel Ford dropping off a Red Cross vehicle which needed repairs.  I was struck by the contrast between the cotton puff clouds in the  background and in the foreground the American flag flapping actively in the breezes brought in by a cool front.

Ruddy shore bird turns into escape artist

We were down on Bolivar Peninsula checking out the pre-storm conditions (with Hurricane Harvey moving up through the Gulf of Mexico) when I shot this photo of a Rudy Turnstone.  Because of the bright conditions, I didn't notice at the time that this guy had gotten snagged in what looks like a remnant from a net.  I checked the photos I took after this and notice that he did finally get free from his bondage.

Strong upper winds ripple cloudy sky.

A strong west to east jet stream pushed ripples into the clouds last week. I am tempted to call it "Cloud Rippled Sky." What do you think?

Planes plow holes in rippled sky

Planes dragging through the rippled clouds left these dark holes in the sky over Beaumont last weekend

Casual shot from road summons moody bio-melange

I was just practicing with the camera while I was riding shotgun.  The result was this melting, moody melange of the roadside bioshere.
