The sky was dark in the west as I started this morning’s run. I felt the moisture in the air. I watched to see how fast the clouds were moving. As I passed the first pond, a heron flew in and landed on the far bank. A goldfinch followed me down the street flying from tree to tree. I was a mile from home when the first rain drops fell. It was just before 6 am. The sun was shining through the clouds in the east. I saw the rainbow begin over an open field. It was faint at first and then it spread from south to north in a full arc across the sky. A second rainbow appeared on the outside of the first. I stood in the rain and watched until the rainbows faded.
I walked over to the open field this afternoon after the storms had left.
While I was taking photos of the field and the wildflowers, I heard an Eastern Meadowlark singing. I looked around and spotted him perched on the electric wire.
I have been out with the camera on a few early mornings during the last several weeks. I think I will share the photos from the most recent outings on Friday and Saturday first later in the week.
Take care and thanks for reading.
