It went on to merge with another cell and produce a beastly storm with a brief tornado and 5.5inch hail near Piedmont, north of OKC - May 29th 2012. With John Allen and Marko Korošec.

Not sure if this violates rule #3 about no animals unless they are part of a landscape but the landscape is reflected in the eyes of the hawk and I cropped in so that the clouds were the focus. Just something different since last nights storms weren't very photogenic as a cold front passed through with a ton of rain. Hope you enjoy the photo and different perspective of storm clouds
