Do You have a few Favorite Things? If there are 7 billion of us on Earth, that means there is a possibility for 7 billion different Favorite Things! And 7 billion different opinions of Life from each perspective. That makes each one of us an unique creation. Does anybody really think we will ever agree on anything? I think the only agreement we can ever make to each other is to Agree to Disagree and accept our uniqueness. Anyway, I wonder if any of You would Choose Baby Birds and Rainbows as two of your Favorite Things? Enjoy!

Peckerwood is the Dad!
The Red-bellied Woodpecker (Melanerpes carolinus) is a medium-sized woodpecker of the Picidae family. It breeds in southern Canada and the northeastern United States, ranging as far south as Florida and as far west asTexas. Its common name is somewhat misleading, as the most prominent red part of its plumage is on the head; the Red-headed Woodpecker however is another species that is a rather close relative but looks quite different.
The end of this Rainbow was over my Street! I guess that makes me the pot of Gold!
Rainbows caused by sunlight always appear in the section of sky directly opposite the sun.
Number of colours in spectrum or rainbow
|The seven main colours|
Higher-order rainbows were described by Felix Billet (1808–1882) who depicted angular positions up to the 19th-order rainbow, a pattern he called a "rose of rainbows". In the laboratory, it is possible to observe higher-order rainbows by using extremely bright and well collimated light produced by lasers. Up to the 200th-order rainbow was reported by Ng et al. in 1998 using a similar method but an argon ion laser beam.
Isaac Newton demonstrated that white light was composed of the light of all the colours of the rainbow, which a glass prism could separate into the full spectrum of colours, rejecting the theory that the colours were produced by a modification of white light. He also showed that red light is refracted less than blue light, which led to the first scientific explanation of the major features of the rainbow. Newton's corpuscular theory of light was unable to explain supernumerary rainbows, and a satisfactory explanation was not found until Thomas Young realised that light behaves as a wave under certain conditions, and can interfere with itself.
