Wow! That's a great shot! Pretty scary. I just realized these are all taken in your back yard. Quite different images on each of the three I've seen so far.

Quoting LarrySmit:
Wow Chris! This is an amazing capture! Soooo close, I bet you could almost feel it!


Pretty much jumped out of my skin, and this isn't the one that hit really close, that one I only caught the edges of it as it was almost right on top of me. That pic is on my website, you can see the yard lit by it.

Exciting shots like this tend to foul up my underwear...
Wish I had taken it, I'll risk the Hanes.
