Cool relief

I’m sure it felt as good as it looked for this pigeon when the cool change dramatically blew through Manhattan today. It was 100*F ( 37.7*C ) with 92% humidity, and suddenly there was thunder and lightening and hail. Hail!? The Chrysler Building and cityscape quickly disappeared behind fog and drenching rain, and the sirens started to whirl around the city. In the midst of all the mayhem a totally drenched pigeon perched on the railing of our balcony, head to the sky, motionless, just soaking it all in. Thank you God! He didn’t move for ages, providing lots of time to photograph his blissful cool relief…
