Remember a couple of weeks ago I told you about the unique landscaping being done around some of the malls here in the south (well, you probably don't so you can see the photo here). Tonight after dinner I set out to get a photo or two for my 365 project. I wasn't really sure where I would go - however, an opportunity always seems to come up, thank goodness. As I drove past that mall again something caught my eye so I got off the main road and headed back to the parking lot.
While everyone else walked towards the stores, Sasha and I headed off in the opposite direction, towards where I had made some photos before. The landscapers had also incorporated a large pond into the mall grounds - which I suspect serves as a rain runoff reservoir. We found a few fine-feathered friends there settling down for the night.
(both photos made with a 18-55mm lens at f9, 10 sec shutter speed, ISO200)

Oh, this is what caught my eye as I drove by initially.
