Unfortunately Monday is the last day of the Season, but the Brookfield Zoo's Birds in Flight show is an opportunity to see amazing birds and in some cases really up close.
Orange on Orange
Brookfield's butterfly exhibit is a wonderful place to get natural, vivid colors.
What's Wrong With This?
This was taken on a Senior's Day trip. It was hand held.
Brookfield never ceases to have wonderful images to capture; however, I frequently can't see them and, when I do, never do them justice!
Fall at the Botanic Garden
After traveling to Colorado and Michigan for fall color, it was gratifying to see some of the most beautiful color in our back yard.
Monarch at Brookfield
I decided to see how butterflies looked in HDR and found that mine didn't turn out too well, but I didn't think this one turned out too bad - but it's not HDR.
Quiet Get Away - Maybe Not
The place this was taken is not Mount Prospect as indicated; however, it is taken in the Chicago area. Friday I went to one of my favorite photo stops and "saw" this for the first time. Obviously, it has been there for years, but I never "saw: it. I wonder how many of you have seen it. If no one identifies where it really is by Sunday night, I tell all.
The dragonflies seem to love the water lillies at the Botanic Garden, This one seemed to be posing, So, what's a guy to do?
Playing With The Kids
I think it was Hudson (they all look alike :-) ) developed this game of diving below the viewing window and coming up right against the glass much to the delight and squeals of the kids standing there. He repeated it often enough to allow me to get some shots. I thought this one was interesting because you can see his nose is above the water line but still under water.
This one is in memory of my niece Barbara Bugal. She loved and was so proud of her Eagles!
