Heron cat-napping Jun 15, 2013 Celia ⋅ Around town ⋅ beauty, birds, Chicago, Lincoln Park, nature, North Pond, photography ⋅ I enjoyed seeing this sleeping heron while at the North Pond in Lincoln Park the other day. Its eyes are bright red, which is how I know it was catching forty winks. Share this:PrintEmailTwitterFacebook Related Like 0 Thanks!

Celia Jun 16, 2013 @ 07:30:45 My husband gave me a Nikon P500, which I often carry with me on walks, and which is great for taking pictures of animals without getting too close. In this case, the bird was actually fairly close to me, and luckily asleep–I love the herons! George Weaver Jul 02, 2013 @ 17:53:07 Herons are my favorite birds … well, among my favorites! 🙂 I like this one very much. Celia Jul 02, 2013 @ 18:02:05 yes, I like them too–I like that I can manage to photograph them. . . . I believe that you have a pet bird, too, don’t you? Celia Jul 02, 2013 @ 18:02:40 p.s. be sure to see my photo of the green heron I saw once. . . . should be easy to find.
