Look, Up In The Sky ...

While sitting on the deck enjoying an adult beverage and watching the birds flying hither and yon about the yard, I saw a plane flying by. Not an unusual occurrence, as we do live by an naval air station and an air force base. And we are under the east coast flyway.

And when I raised my binoculars to view it, I saw contrail iridescence. And I quick dashed off to get my camera. Alas, when I got back it was too late. The contrail was pure white.

Bummed that I had missed it I  returned to my drink. And I waited. And I watched, hoping for another chance.

And I got it. As the image above of the colorful contrail attests.
