Photos taken at Crescent Bend Nature Park near Schertz, Texas. The bird in the far background is, I think, a great white egret, often mistaken for a heron because of its size.
Crescent Bend was originally a neighborhood full of houses, but it was ignorantly built in a flood plain. The flood of 1998 completely submerged the entire neighborhood and it was condemned against any future residential use. Next time I’m there I’ll try to remember to get some shots of the what’s left of the old streets.
