Header Competition Season 2 # 30 - "Water"

The theme this week is by me which is "Water".  Mac, Gail's ManLanny, Dave,Sandy and I have a little contest to show a new theme header each week. We now post anytime before 4 PM EDT and start the voting after that.

I love to be on the water and because of scheduling problems I was late in posting for my own theme. I got a call this morning to hit the lake unexpectedly. I went out without a post and family needs slowed down the post. That said, I wanted to show some shots on the water. I caught a little Painted Turtle on a worm. He was not hurt and returned to the water to bite again. Note the Frogg Toggs Rainsuit I got from Bass Pro Shops, it keeps the water off of you.

This was a scary sky to go out on the water.
But it broke into a beautiful sky later in the day.
I chose for my my final theme shot the water this week. After a wet rainy morning the Sun came out and so did a rainbow with a reflection on the water.
See what the others shared from the above links.

Tom, your photos are great. Love the little turtle. I keep hoping that some bird would drop a pair of turtles in our ponds and then we could have many little baby turtles. So far, nothin'.
I appreciate your header, I need to see more rainbows.
