Day 111

Finally a pretty day in Chicago, so I took the younger kids to the Brookfield Zoo. We had a nice walk, stayed for a couple hours, just talking and laughing. 

Has anyone else been watching the Decorah Eagle Cam? I've been addicted since there were only 3 eggs. It was fun to see them hatching, and now that they are getting bigger, what they're having for lunch.

So at the zoo, it was only fitting to capture a Bald Eagle since I was so close. I love them, they're so beautiful!

What an awesome shot. I love the angle you took this from; it makes him/her look so stately. You'd never know this was taken at the zoo!

You lucked out! Every time I've been to that zoo, this eagle knows I'm coming and hits the deck. LOL! Seriously, he likes to hide it seems. AWESOME shot with this Kara!!
