The light's been autumnal for a few weeks now, hitting at a slant even on the hottest days. The brilliant (imho) Daniel Swain over at WeatherWest sees signs of an October heatwave, so along with a change of season, this equinox brings trepidation.
On a lighter note, here's a group of egrets at Legacy Park. I thought the camera had shifted and blurred the bird on the left, but look closer and you'll see he's just fluffing his feathers. I love how egrets go from elegant to goofball in an instant.
