San Rafael Valley is a great place to photograph wintering raptors in Arizona. It's interesting, though, that every time we visit, my favorite shots don't have any birds in them at all. This photo, in wildlife photographer fashion, was shot from the passenger seat of our truck. Arizona had a decent rainy season this winter and this pond extended all the way across the main road. So, we basically drove into the pond, waited for the water to be still, and took a few shots as the sun set behind the tree.
