Photo By Zach Lewis

In spring, when Covid-19 guidelines were starting to be enforced, I didn't take as many photos as usual. I didn't leave my house much.  As a way to continue taking photos, I would snap photos through the windows. I was staying at home, and I was socially distancing. Although it's summer and more places are opening again, I'm still staying at home more. So, I continue to take wildlife photos from my window from time to time. This photo was taken from my window on Tuesday, Aug. 4 during heavy rainstorms.
