I love the new elephant statue at the park and your pics are great...especially with the squirrel grabbing the bread:)

Anna said...

I love the backlit creamy flower. It feels like fading sunlight of the day - kind of like I feel right now.

Clytie said...

I love all of your pictures here - that squirrel with the bread is adorable!

But the backlit flowers are absolutely stunning!!!

What great photos. That squirrel is making off with a lot of dough.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Great pictures, Diane. That 5th one from the bottom --looks like a hand... see it?

Hugs,
Betsy

Were you the "softy" that gave Mr. Squirrel that piece of bread? LOL He looks like he's enjoying it!

I like the elephant photo too, but they are all really nice.

Janie said...

Love the squirrel making off with his slice of bread. Nice photos of the water fowl, too.

Martha Z said...

That's a nice park with an interesting variety of water fowl.

Gaelyn said...

Amazing glow on those flowers and the elephant is very cool. Nice shots of the park.

Magpie said...

Tracy is too funny! :)
I love this park and so did my daughter when she was younger. She was so fascinated by the squirrels! I love the backlit flower picture also.

Pete said...

love the back-lighting used

Allison said...

That SQUIRREL! So funny. And the way you captured the light through the flower petals... what a lovely shot.

Thérèse said...

The night heron is really cool with his hairdo! It must be such a nice park to go to with kids.

Amin said...

Very beautiful place!

Beautiful snapshots of the park, Diane!

Loree said...

It goes without saying that I would like the squirrel photo the best.

excellet set of photos again Diane, you always have lots of suprises in your walks. that squirrel with bread is cute. the heron always look pensive.

clairz said...

Lovely--I especially like the flower (red yucca?) and the animals, of course. We just spent some time in Arizona and think that you have a really lovely state. Such variations in scenery. Wonderful!

Lindy MacDuff said...

That little squirrel has quite the find!

A lovely series of images from Reid Park. It has been many years since we visited there. Really like your backlit flowers. I don't remember seeing the elephant sculpture - new?
All very beautiful. Looks like you had a gorgeous day to visit.

Diane AZ said...

Hi, The elephant sculpture is new. It's to draw attention to an elephant habitat that's being constructed at the zoo.

Barb said...

Was that squirrel making a sandwich? The light through the blossoms is wonderful!

Julie said...

Beautiful photos, Diane!!!

Lrong said...

I am visualizing how nice the place is, by looking at the first picture... I could spend hours, shooting pictures there...

Darla said...

Wow, fabulous...the light glowing through and around that flower (5th photo) is incredible...can't stop gazing at her ethereal beauty...

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

Candy "Sweetstuff" said...

That is a great park! I love the elephant. Super photos!

John said...

Nice pictures. Lots of people think the desert is monochrome, but your pictures show that that is not the case.
