Tonight a storm roared through New York City shortly after I finished a tour of the reservoir. Seventeen species and nothing new seen.

The lightening was close by and it felt a bit dangerous being out there in the middle of it all.

For times like these I carry a dry bag to protect the camera. It's big enough to hold everything that can be damaged in a downpour inside my backpack.
