Dragon flies everywhere

An amazing sight greets me every evening as I go out to check the chickens. At least 100 dragonflies are flitting about our 'yard'. As you watch them, it seems there are more and more flying about. It gets pretty entertaining when the chickens think they can actually catch the dragonflies.
We have had a run of hot humid weather that seems to sap the energy out of all of us. But the weekend is here and cooler weather is coming. We have had an unusual amount of rain all summer and this past week is no different. Thunderstorms are common and expected almost every day. The other day after one particular bad one the sky cleared and a rainbow came out over the barn and disapeared into the mountain. I tried to get a picture of it, but it is faint.
Everyday, the fog moves through the mountains and our valley. This is one of the sights that I love best here.
