Backyard Sky - Skywatch Friday

After days of rain, our boat cover had developed a pool of fresh water. The dove was taking a bath in our boat cover.

Drying off on our boat dock.

The couple preening after a bath.

A wet blue jay sitting outside my bedroom window in the rain.

Most of the rain had moved out and the sun going down behind the clouds created some nice color.

Sun down behind the trees.

Before I went in for the night, I walked around to the front yard to see if my resident frogs had come out and saw the tiny rainbow.
