Yellow-crowned Night-Herons just before rain

Just before the rain came down, this pair of Yellow-crowned Night-Herons flew up from the tall grass at Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. 

The rain came, lightly at first, leaving a rainbow to the southeast. But when I was about two miles from the trailhead, the rainbow faded as the cooler wind, and the steady, heavy rain came.
