Spring has Sprung!

Merle.  5D Canon Mk 2.  Canon 100-400mm L.
Taken in the area of the Cradle of Mankind over the weekend. We have a dry Winter and when Spring comes, regardless of whether or not we have had our first rains, the dry twigs and burnt short stumps of grass come alive, nothing short of a miracle!  Tonight we were surprised to hear thunder and then lightning followed by our first drops of rain - hopefully there will be many more to come!
