A modest little rainbow

There has been such a lot of rain recently, and in between showers a rainbow appeared. It was nice and bright when first spotted, but by the time I raced inside to get the camera, it was starting to fade to a very modest little rainbow indeed. A few snaps later, and it was almost gone.

According to Wikipedia - A rainbow is an optical and meteorological phenomenon that causes a spectrum of light to appear in the sky when the sun shines onto droplets of moisture in the atmosphere. They take the form of a multicoloured arc, made up of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet bands. Whatever the explanation, it is a lovely thing to see. And yes, it’s still raining!
