Default Urban Water

After looking at Harriet's Macro shot of the water drop and reading her explanation of where it was shot, I thought of this shot I took a while back.

It was in a shallow run off behind a Shopping Center in Novato CA, just five feet from the parking lot, shot with the K10D.

Ha ha - nice shot. I can't help but think he/she is wasting her time. Are there really any fish in that puddle !?

No Kevin, but look at the gorgeous bird he/she is looking at in the reflective puddle.

A keeper Tom, thanks for sharing it with us.

What a great shot! I love reflections and this is a very fine example.

Thanks, it has been a while since I have been out taking photographs due to some personal issues, but things are fine now. This is another shot from the same trip to the Novato Mall, which just shows you that photo opportunities can show up any time, anywhere.
