This is what I jokingly called leopard water. Early spring we have a lot of pollen, and in particular the loblolly pines are going crazy. Everything out-doors (and in-doors) is covered with a yellow dust. In the morning you have to run your windshield wipers to be able to see. Rainwater runoff becomes a stream of yellow water. This is the only place where I have lived that I have seen it; but then I only lived in North Carolina in the fall. I have many pictures of the ponds out back with a yellow film on them or even rings of yellow pollen on the trees in the pond that are left there once water retreats.
It was raining outback the day I took this picture and the solid sheen of yellow pollen was broken up in this leopard type color. Really neat. You can see the water drops.
