    well i finally got a good storm , had to take them out my front window , but i got a few nice ones

    the "time" feature on the R1 is great for this type of shooting , the only down side is the dam buffer is so crappy , if you get a good shot you have to wait for it to process and i missed a few really good ones
    but this one was dead center , so close it over exposed aevery thing but i played in PS and made it a little easier to see

    for reference on size i was in the 2nd story of the house and that tree branch you see is about other 10 feet above me
    this thing was thick
