Great morning after some flooding. The trails were closed at the Cosumnes River Preserve due to it. I shot the sunrise on I-5 at Twin Cities Road, then went to Bruceville Road for the rainbow. I could see a bald eagle on a Desmond Road power pole (by the residences), but as soon as I turned on to it for a photo, it spooked and flew south. Had to grab a shot through the car windshield. Not the best tactic, as you can see.

The sheep had been moved out of the Wetlands Walk area, so the grass was only a few inches high. Not many ducks. Only saw a few geese, no sandhill cranes, and a dozen stilts.

Drove down New Hope Road for the oak tree pastoral shots.
