Partial Eclipse of the Sun

And today there was a solar eclipse in Las Vegas.  If you were over in St. George, UT or near Zion National Park - you were in the best location to see the Ring of Fire (100% blockage of the sun) - but in Vegas, the news said it was about 90%.
It definitely got darker a bit earlier than usual and all that shade that the moon created caused the temps to drop a wee bit and I had my two pieces of cardboard outside; letting the sun stream through one, so I could see the progress on the other one.

And then I saw this......

It reminded me of sparkly diamonds - but it was the sunshine streaming through the leaves of the tree.  Since the sun was being blocked by Mr. Moon, the sun appeared to be slivers of light.  So pretty.
