Default Bath time

Went to Fullerton arboretum a few weeks ago. Their waterfall was turned off which stopped the flow of water to the stream. This left behind standing water so the small birds felt that it was safe to take a bath, here are 3 of my favorites from that day.

Cool images - It looks like a heat wave compared to the East coast!

Default Bath time

I was only about 5-6 feet away from where the birds were bathing. The is a medium sized rock that I was kneeling against and as long as I stayed as still as possible the birds kept coming to bath. This was a rare treat indeed. Thanks for the comment.
