Picture of the Day - "Ripples" - Aug. 8, 2017

With the forecast being for rain for a good part of the day, I thought I might get out early and get a few shots. There was a light rain when I left home but it had stopped by the time I got to the nearby watering hole. Lots of birds but it looks like the Sandpipers may have moved off. Saw a few Plovers, a couple of Egrets, a couple Great Blue Herons, a pair of Kingfishers and this little guy. I believe it to be a Dowitcher. I love the ripples and reflections from the water. It was very overcast and early morning so the light wasn't the best but I love how it turned out.
