Rainbow at end of Day/ Sky Watch

Rainbow over osprey nest

Just before sunset, I waited, waited,waited for an osprey to return to its nest at the top of this light standard when a rainbow began to grow. Ha! My camera captured a rainbow but not the osprey.

Oh wow! That is a very nice huge rainbow. Did the Osprey ever return? Probably saw you there and hope you got rained on. LOL MB

A rainbow is much better than an Osprey any day! Great catch!

That's an amazing photo. Must be nice and warm for the ospreys on top of that light pole.

I'm sure your osprey photo would have been lovely; but this capture is very cool indeed.
Beautiful color in the whole image.

see you there! said...

Beautiful. I wonder which is harder to capture with your lens, an osprey or a rainbow?

We have osprey in the UK, not here. Beautiful birds, but they do poop a lot. Gorgeous rainbow rising.

All I can say is... Oooohhhh...

Photo Cache said...

That's not a bad plan B isn't it. Rainbows always manage to bring a smile on my face.

Jacob said...

A very impressive rainbow to be sure! You either had a long lens or were very lucky to so close to the pot of gold!

Deborah Godin said...

Gorgeous big fat rainbow - going to be a lot of gold there!

James said...

Wonderful photo!

Your corner of the world is stunning, and you capture it's beauty well. You came away with a nice photo, and will most likely get the bird the next time.

Leora said...

Wow, that is one big rainbow! I have a stuffed osprey on my blog post from yesterday. Much easier than waiting around in nature. Though not nearly as satisfying.

April said...

I like surprises like that. Beautiful capture of the rainbow and the nest and all the light!

Beautiful view of the rainbow, how lucky for you to get to enjoy it and kind of you to share with Sky Watch Friday.

Looks like a great substitute!!! Awesome capture. I could almost reach out and touch it!

Eamon said...

Oh well, the wait was still worth it then. Great place for a nest btw.

George said...

I'm sorry you didn't get the osprey, but I'm very glad you got this wonderful rainbow.

EG: I was trying to get two Osprey today on the lake. The rainbow is a great exchange.

Susie of Arabia said...

I'd say you made out pretty good having to settle for a measley rainbow shot! LOL!

Tara R. said...

That is a wonderful rainbow capture. So many are too small to really see well. This one is amazing.

Everyone deserves to capture a rainbow in their lifetime. And with the osprey, you hit the mother lode!

ms toast burner said...

Pesky osprey, how dare they not cooperate!

Beautiful photo anyways!

slim said...

That was what you were meant to capture: a gorgeous rainbow. The osprey was probably behind you the whole time. they are such teases.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Beautiful capture of the rainbow, EG. I love rainbows---and always think that God is sending down his colors JUST for me.

Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
