The water makes rainbows around sunrise and sunset when it's pretty powerful like it is right now, and sometimes I use that to make fanciful images like this one. All comments, suggestions, ideas are welcome!

Is it just me, or does everyone see the spirit of the bird in the rainbow?

From the top down I see the bald head, the two eyes, the beak thirty degrees left, thicker neck, body from back-to-front left-to-right almost the same as the bird below, shorter legs and feet resting on a (water) branch. To make matters 'worse, the spirit bird is looking directly at the bird below. Wow, what did you catch? S-


YIKES! Once you see it, you can't un-see it.

Well, I said it was fanciful. I just didn't know how true that was.

Thank you for finding the Spirit Of The Dam!
