With the 2017 Monsoon season just a couple days away, I thought I'd share a little lightning capture from the 2014 Monsoon Season. I took this photo from the Uno Trail in Superior, Arizona as a severe storm passed just to our east. The lightning was close but just behind the hill. #lightning #lightninglover #lightningphotography #monsoonseason2014 #superiorarizona #weather #weatherphotography #lightningchaser #azwx #arizonaweather #nikon #ilovelightning #severeweather

This is another shelter that was converted and used by the Indians.
This shelter was a little nicer and more isolated than may of the other rock huts. It would have been a prime spot for a chef and his family. ----------------------------------

Near the Indian ruins, we found this honey bee hive located about twenty feet above the ground under a rock outcrop. In Arizona, we have two types of honey bees, European and African. Because both types of bees have only minor differences, it is difficult to identify which variety you are dealing with, so it is wise to keep a safe distance.

In general, European honey bees prefer to build their nests in protected environments that are dry and above ground, typically inside hollowed out trees or cactus. They tend to stay in one location for a while and build large nests.

African bees move around a lot, splitting into new groups. They are not as picky and will build hives underground or in exposed areas like tree branches or cliffs, like the hive in this photo.

When it comes to defence, this is probably the most notable difference between the two sub-species.

European bees send 10 to 20 guard bees when there is a perceived threat within 20 feet of the nest.

African bees will send out 100 or more guard bees if they feel threatened by anything within 120 feet of their hive. This is why they have such a fierce reputation.

The moral of this story, respect bees, and keep an eye out for indications of a nearby hive. Most people get attacked because they accidentally disturb a nest. ---------------------------------

A remnant of times past. This cave cut out of the mountain by water and wind was once converted into a shelter for a group of Indians.
If I understand the story correctly, this area, which has several of these converted caves, was like a hotel where Indians would rest as they travelled between the valley and the mountains. ----------------------------------

~Still one of my top shoots~

This is a four shot panorama taken a few weeks ago near Oak Flat Campground east of Superior, Arizona.
I used a Neewer CN-160 at its lowest setting to light the rocks in the foreground. Thanks to @photogadventures and @roycebairphoto for the introduction to low level light painting via the Photog Adventures podcast.

This is a panorama of the Milky Way made up of 16 photos. It was taken near Oak Flat Campground east of Superior, Arizona.
The "cloud cover" near the horizon is actually smoke from the Pinal Fire that burned over 4,300 acres of forest over the course of four weeks. Started by lightning in a remote section of forest, officials decided to manage, rather than extinguish it.
Although forest fires are destructive, they are an important part of the natural cycle, cleaning up the forest floor and making way for new life to grow.

In keeping with my three post theme, here is a closer look at the pool of water that remained even though the Queen Creek had already stopped flowing, at least until the next good rain, which will probably be a while.

The colors from the trees reflecting off the surface of the water was beautiful. ------------------------------------

It's just an ordinary day in Arizona. The sun is shining, the grass is green, and the trees look radiant...
Wait a second! Isn't Arizona a desert?

Unlike most of the country, the creeks in Arizona are dry more often than that are flowing. Queen Creek near Superior still had some standing water in May. Here is a photo of one of the last holdouts.

Superior, AZ motorcycle breakfast this morning. We sat by the window and nature was showing off. ๐Ÿ’— it. #motorcycle #superiorarizona #naturehour #coyote #arizona #openyoureyes
