After yesterdays rainstorm, we had 60 millimetres +, the whole world was refreshed and green this morning. After church I took the camera and the dogs to see what there was to be seen.

Yesterday this shrub was a grey green dried up thorn bush, this morning it's bright green and lush with bright yellow flowers. Absolutely amazing how quickly nature recovers after a good rainfall.
The little brook on the farm is no longer sneaking sulkily out from under the culvert, but babbling along as a good little brook should.
Even the Southern Red-bishop looks brighter after the rain.
A Black-Headed heron, (Ardea melanocephala) on the look out for breakfast. This picture and the one below need to be enlarged to see the full effect.
A bird on the wing. Haven't ID this bird yet, even has my sister Jo, at memorablemeanders.blogspot.com flummoxed, and she has many years birding experience.
