The San Diego River is a river in San Diego County, California. It originates in the Cuyamaca Mountains northwest of the town of Julian, then flows to the southwest until it reaches the 112,800 acre-foot (139,000,000 m³) El Capitan Reservoir, the largest reservoir in the river's watershed.
The San Diego River Conservancy was established by an act of the California Legislature to preserve, restore and enhance the San Diego River area. The Conservancy is a non-regulatory agency of the state government with an independent nine-member governing board. It is tasked to acquire, manage and conserve land and to protect or provide recreational opportunities, open space, wildlife species and habitat, wetlands, water quality, natural flood conveyance, historical/cultural resources, and educational opportunities. One important goal is to help create a river-long park and hiking trail, stretching the full length of the river from its headwaters in the Cuyamaca Mountains to the Pacific Ocean.

I see you took an egret picture too. But a different type of what we have here in Israel.
Fine clear image with reflection over water.

Hello Eleu, Great shot of this bird with a wonderful reflection. Excellent light and good composition. Interesting note on the river. San Diego is a beautiful city. Our son lived there for a few years and we visited them frequently. Have a good weekend. Regards, Roger
