The finch yesterday was by a pond on the UofA campus which has fish and turtles (presumably dropped off by departing students who couldn't keep their aquarium's set up at the end of a semester). It's also home to dragonflies, butterflies, palm trees and other plants - a regular oasis in the desert. This is one of the inhabitants, relaxing in the sunshine. The image was taken with my 70-300mm zoom in macro mode at 300mm focal length using an exposure of 1/1000 seconds at f/5.6, ISO 800.
