We have received a fair amount of gentle rain today which is very good for wetting the ground. Later we should see some of the remnants of Laura as the storms heads northeast. Whether that will replenish the brooks remains to be seen but at least the plants are getting refreshed.
Not everyone here is happy about the weather though (of course considering Louisiana’s plight we have nothing to complain about). This Monarch caterpillar-Danaus plexippus was hiding below a milkweed leaf trying to stay dry. Despite the leaf cover a few drops did attach adding something interesting to an otherwise typical shot.
