These fantastic pictures come to us from David Mimlitch. David experiments with aerial photograph, and this time he set his rig up at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UTSWMC). There is an active heron rookery on the school’s property, and David was able to give us a look at it from a unique perspective.

There are a few Anhingas in this photograph, there on the bare branches in front of the Marriott.
