    What a great perspective — perfect timing for your lens!

      I didn’t even see it at first, DH did. And I had to carefully crouch down on a rock next to the pond and wait to get this shot. The things we do 😉

    It is like he is peering out at the world.

    Oh…. That is beautiful! We have quite a number of herons in this area (West coast, Norway), but we rarely see them so close up. Thank you.

      Thank you. I feel fortunate to have been in the right place at the right time.

    WHAT A CAPTURE…

      Thank you! I owe it to DH for spotting the bird and for exercising which made it easier for me to crouch carefully on that rock for the shot – LOL

      I mean besides the human animals, dogs, pigeons, sparrows…didn’t know there were other critters like this there 🙂 I wonder what was hanging around/in the bigger pond we didn’t get to.

    Nice catch, Teri! It’s amazing the wildlife in a city’s parks. We’ve got a colony of monk parakeets in a lakefront park on the South side. Yes, it’s “South” but nowhere near South enough for these tropical birds yet they’re thriving.

      I still want to make it up to Chicago! So those are wild parakeets? You don’t often hear those two words together 😉

      • #20 by ChgoJohn on July 31, 2014 - 8:40 am

        They look more like small parrots than what we think of as parakeets. Here’s a link to Wikipedia’s webpage:

        Thanks but still…And where do they go in the winter?

      • #22 by ChgoJohn on July 31, 2014 - 8:47 am

        They stay put. The birds have built massive structures in the trees, each one can house a couple dozen birds. It really is amazing. People in Hyde Park set out food for them on their balconies and in their yards all winter long.

        That does it! When I get to Chicago I’m hiring you as my tour guide 🙂
