Reflected Rainbow

There aren't normally many patches of open water round here but the recent wet winter has left large pools in some waterlogged fields.

As the sun came out after another shower and the sunlit rain was in the right direction I decided to head down to the field.

It was still raining lightly so a delicate bow with supernumerary seemed to hang in front of the trees.

I managed to get to the pool in time to catch a reflected bow. This is not a reflection of the bow I could see over over the trees but comes from a different set of drops.

Moments later a gust of wind ruffled the surface and it was gone.
