  • Bands of Salt River Horses come to Butcher Jones Beach to drink from Saguaro Lake. During the summer months, the groupings take turns wading into the water to get a little respite from the Arizona heat. This herd came to the edge of the water, each adult taking turns to step back, watching for anything that might put the others in harm's way. Suddenly the colt came out and took her turn to watch out for the rest of the herd. It was a magical moment when dozens of photographers on the beach watching collectively said, "Awe!"
