Bath time


Last Thursday was a pleasant day with temperatures in the low 90's (about 32c) so I stopped at the Desert Botanical Garden for a walk.  It was nice to be out doors enjoying the garden with hardly anyone else around.  I found these starlings frolicking in one of the fountains.  I used the telephoto lens to capture this so I wouldn't disturb their fun.

Seems like a delightful way to cool off on a hot day.

Birds do love a bath.
They might have gotten drowned last night as it poured down rain most of the night.

They certainly do look like they're enjoying themselves.

That's a delightful sight Sharon.. I enjoy so much watching my smaller birds in the front garden doing the same thing in the birdbath :)

Children, dogs and birds know how to have fun in water.
