Raindrops on Roses and Whiskers on Kittens

"Never lose an opportunity of seeing anything beautiful, for beauty is God's handwriting." ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

This was taken at Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge (http://go.usa.gov/jrkY) in Montana seven years ago this week. Fogbows form the same way rainbows do. A small fraction of the light entering droplets is internally reflected once and emerges to form a large circle opposite the sun. Fogbows are formed by much smaller cloud and fog droplets than the raindrops that form rainbows.
