I took another walk around Lake Margherite in Scottsdale by where I work last week. I love it there. This is a small heron that I think may be a Green Heron but I’ll never really know for sure. He may also be a Night-Crowned Black Heron, which I have seen before here (see my previous walk around this lake)~sadly, I have always spelled the lake’s name wrong until now).
Whatever he is, he didn’t much care for the attention and flew to the other side for some privacy.

And a lovely Giant Swallowtail flying over the lake.
This is the lake from the far end, it curves some so you can’t see the whole thing. One of the benches…
