White-faced Heron

...have you ever been a passenger in a vehicle on a long-haul drive?  At some point, maybe after a lunch stop, feeling comfy when you step back in the car, ready for the new scenery ahead.

The sun is shining through the glass and suddenly, your eyelids start feeling like they've got lead sinkers on them.  You try so hard to keep focused; but in the end it's easier to succumb!

I think this is where the White-faced Heron is going.  Taken late afternoon, this week, down by the Wyong River.





....going, g-o-i-n-g


OOPS, gone!

very funny photos! It must be exhausting holding those long necks up all of the time! great photos of these beautiful Australian birds.

Great series of photos and the captions match perfectly!

Phil Slade said...

It's not often you see that happen Carole. Birds sem able to "sleep" with their eyes open, so to catch that series on camera is probably fairly unique.

Great photos Carole.
Very good view, I have to laugh.

Christian Perrin said...

Haha! This is fantastic! Your comments capture the mood perfectly.

It would make an awesome Facebook meme!

Love the white face on the heron. Here we don't have 'em. It's always a special treat for me to view birds from 'round the world.

Absolutely wonderful captures Carole. It's interesting to see they don't sleep like most birds??

Ida said...

Oh how funny. I love it when little kids do the (sleep fighting thing like that) but I've never seen a bird do it until now.
