Lightning and a Moth

Some of the storms in early June had such a high density of lightning strikes that it turned out to be easy enough to catch a couple of strikes. My location left a lot to be desired, and I kind lacked the courage (or funds) to subject myself and the camera to the worst of the storm. Here's what I got:
