This one used 'set-up' rain.

Many thanks to the production crew -

Niece Jenna for holding the hose.
Wife Lisa for holding the pine branch that the hose water dripped through for better rain.
Daughter Lily and Mopsy for frog wrangling.
Daughter Ally (age 3) for generally getting in the way
Rip the frog for being a patient model. (He aquired that name from a big rip in his belly skin; possibly from a near death experience with a pike.)

This was a squall that came up on a sailing trip and all the streaks coming down from the clouds was a very strong downpour that missed us by about a mile.
