Sunset at Mountain Creek Lake Park - Dallas side near Dallas Baptist University. I stopped on my way home to watch the sunset. It was extremely muddy due to the 3" of rain the night before,

I observed this Great Blue Heron at Sunset and if you look close you can see the American White Pelican swimming in the water (lower right hand corner)
