Water fun~Sunday Stills Challenge~081411
Obviously this isn't macro, but close-up. These water things are over at the Desert Ridge Villas in Scottsdale, Arizona. There is a pool and water play area down by our room. The water play area has buckets that fill up with water and then splash down, as well as fountains for the kids. What fun for kids! The area with the waterfall has a kid's play area with sand, a slide down a gecko, and a fossil dig area! I mean, if I were a kid, I'd sure want to come here!!! And, early in the morning, both areas are full of quail, cottontails, and cactus wrens and doves. I included the bottom photo so that you could see the entire water play area.
