CommentThis image was taken late in the afternoon at a very muddy waterhole. I did not realize until I reviewed the images that I had taken, that a muddy waterhole would produce such a clear reflection. I chose this image as the reflection is so clear that it even replicated the catchlight in the Bluebonnet's eye.
