Caption   A Toyota Prius is seen underneath a cloud formation known as a whale's mouth. This photo was taken on US highway 287/385 between Springfield and Lamar in eastern Colorado on June 8, 2014. Whale's mouth clouds form when cold air from a thunderstorm flows underneath and lifts warm, moist air surrounding the storm. The photographer uses the Prius to chase storms.
