A barrage of Texas lightning bolts.

A lucky shot. A sunset flag with rainbow. I clicked the shutter just in time to catch some lightning with it.

Return_Strokes

Oklahoma lightning with plenty of branching and fine detail.

Notice how the main channel has several (up to about 5) yet the small branches have none. It is the current pulsing in these return strokes that causes lightning to flicker
