      I see the 'flood' tag, so I should assume this is not suppose to be in a river?

      Either way, nice shot, perfectly captured!

      Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)

      Interesting shot. Well, there's no oil slick so that's good news.

      Seen in my contact's excellent photostream

      Once upon a time, you used to be able to find these pump jacks on platforms in a couple of locations on Keystone Lake. Don't know if they're still out there though or not.

      Interesting find, very well done.

      @Jason B: It is in the flood plain, but not normally underwater, especially in late June. It has many herons and cranes and wading around and fishing. I much prefer flooding to it's normal look!

      I don't think that I've seen an oil donkey in a pond before. Good photo.

      Great picture!

      Wildlife Refuges aren't always terribly pristine. :(

      @LongInt57: Wow! I have never heard one called an 'oil donkey' before. Good name!

      Besides all that has been said, I love the green in the picture. So many shades and tones. Great!

      That is one small pump jack. Must be a very shallow well.

      I've been looking for a picture that sort of blended summer and technology in Oklahoma, and this is so playful and perfect. Thank you for making it available as a creative commons photo. You can see how it was used here.

      I was looking for some inspiration/reference for a sequence on the animated movie I'm working on. This image summed it all up!!! Great stuff.

      This must be well off the road because I've been on that road nearby but never seen this.
