We had a rainstorm a couple of days ago and last night. The photos below ere taken when we were visiting my father-in-law.
Dad's neighbor's back porch.
Here's the shot of the rain water hitting the ground.
Then the next day when we went and visited him again, I saw this cardinal. I turned off the fire in the stove where I was cooking some snacks, grabbed my camera and snapped some shots of this male cardinal.
He realized that chubskulit is stalking him so he flew away.
I was using my point and shoot camera so the sudden movement of the cardinal made this capture.
