Sun, Rain and Bows

I'm trying a mini-post from my cell phone camera this afternoon. I should have better photos later...

Stormy skies overshadowed the park at Perdido Key this morning, if you looked to the west:

Looking east, skies were sunny and bright:

The skies mixed in an incredible array of rainbows. Over the course of my five hour turtle and snowy plover work, there were at least ten different rainbows! One arced all the way from the bay to the gulf. It was just too wide for my camera lens -- guess I need to buy a wide angle next! Any suggestions?

In other park news, we officially have more nests now than last year with 15 in the three park areas and Pensacola Beach. There was one more loggerhead nest yesterday, two this morning and a new Kemp's nest all in the Santa Rosa area of the park (think Opal Beach). Yeah! Now it's time for a hatchling party!
