If you've been here before, you know the drill. If you're new - listen carefully to the rules: Take a stab at writing the most hilarious, insightful or appropriate caption for one, two or all three of the supplied photos. Leave your caption entry as a comment in the post, and in one week your peers will have the opportunity to vote you Caption Captain III.
Before we reveal this round's three photo candidates, let's reveal the prize. In keeping with our very high prize standards, it's a beaut. Caption Captain III will be the lucky recipient of a PERSONALLY SIGNED copy of The Manual of Detection by the esteemed* Jedediah Berry. Recognize the name? That's right, we snuck in his debut submission earlier this week, sneaksters that we are! It seems that Mr. Berry also shares our interest in rain's hardest working accessory, which is evident right there on page 2 of the Manual.
Enough with the appetite whetting, let's get to the captionless candidates!

And there you go - comments are open for your caption-entry candidates! Good luck, have fun, and a very, very special thanks to Mr. Berry for his generous gift. See you back here in a week for the opening of the voting.
*If you're into the whole Young Lions Fiction Award, Strand Critics Award, Dashiell Hammett Prize finalist thing. Which we are.
