Rainbow in a puddle

We will be on assignment for the next two weeks or so, and should be back by the end of the month.  That means limited new posts.  

In the meantime, enjoy this reflection of the sun and clouds in a rain puddle that was beneath our feet as we walked through the parking lot.

Droplets of condensation remain on the shady side of the in-ground lighting fixture seen in the walkway beneath our feet.

Rain on the drain

Drain cover after a rainstorm


After a rain storm, the rain water drains through the tiling.  The recessed middle of the drain cover retains the rainwater.  It is plain that the rain stays mainly on the drain.

Ready for my close-up

Five petal flower plant, mowed

The ground beneath our feet often has surprises.  The five petal flower plant was mowed down as part of the regular mowing schedule.  In the lower left corner, a skipper butterfly waits while the mowed area is documented.

The skipper butterfly, patiently:  "Alright Skeetmotis, I'm ready for my close-up."
