As the sky cleared after an evening thunder shower a beautiful double rainbow formed in the eastern sky. The entire scene as too large to capture with my widest lens so I opted to photograph vertically in series and stitch it together in Photoshop.
While watching a meadow with Willard one evening he pointed out that a bird that may be of interest had landed behind me. At first glance I though that it was a phoebe but flash of yellow on the breast brought me back for a second look. I'm glad I did for this was only my second time identifying a great-crested flycatcher in the field.

While it doesn't qualify as a "lifer" this encounter did produce my best images to date of the species.
