Nature in the city

One more photo from the beautiful oasis I featured yesterday. In this shot I was able to catch the great blue heron flying low over the lake. You might have to enlarge to the photo to see it.

When enlarged, this photo reveals a great reflection shot of the heron in flight.

As you commented on my site, it is a coincidence that we have each posted a heron photo on our sites today. While posting a heron is not so unusual for Costa Rica, it is unusual for Phoenix.

When my parents were alive and living in Leisure World in Mesa, Arizona, they had a lake behind their house with herons.

That's a great reflection shot, you should link it to Newtown Area daily's weekend reflections!

Beautiful photos of a beautiful place. I must visit it on my next trip down the hill.

This is so beautiful! The still surface of the water makes the most fantastic reflections!

Sorry I'm late! But you had great timing on this shot. I love seeing these big birds. We have one that hangs out at the pond just down the hill.
