Kentucky - lightning bugs and bolts

Went back to Kentucky to visit relatives and attend a wedding. While there I had an objective to capture fireflys on camera. I tried before but my camera wasn't fast enough (400ASA f3.5) This time I brought my 7D and tried with 6400ASA and an f2.0 lens.

While taking these pics a storm moved in. The thunderless lightning pulled me away from spending more time on my quest. The lightning was so frequent it seriously reminded me of the fight scene in "War of the Worlds"


Here is my clip. Just after I shot this, all heck broke loose with hail, rain, winds and flooded streets. Cool.
