Straight Out Of The Camera Sunday

I meant to post this picture when I took it on Mother's Day. I don't know why I didn't. The smoke doesn't look very ferocious but it came from a big destructive wildfire that burned hundreds of acres of woods behind our development. Apparently some guys thought they'd put out a campfire ... but they hadn't. We watched helicopters fly over head to the lake across the street to collect water to fight the fire. There was a strong wind that day which just fanned the flames. I don't think we were in danger of being evacuated though.

Here is an article about that fire.

I missed this meme so I'm doing both parts. This part is from Mother's Day, May 9.
