Staying Awake: A Necessity When Modeling (3 Photographs)

The Heron only had to do one thing, stay awake. Yet over the course of a few seconds he went to sleep. I am not sure if he found me boring, had been fishing too long or had flown from a great distance, but still it was rude!

  2. I like the premise of “You only had one job to do …” Never heard that applied to a creature other than man, though. LOL! Cute!

    • Thanks. Standing and waiting for something to happen, sometimes patience is bolstered by humor.

  3. Not sure I am a fan of the sleeping photo, I much prefer his eye open. Much less eerie.

    • I never considered eerie. Though it’s unnerving to see such a large animal on one leg asleep.

  4. I have seen, and photographed, birds that go to sleep even when they are perched on the bird feeder ring. Then they stay there for a long time, unless other birds fly in and bump them off.

    • Humans get sleepy after eating too😄. Never seen this on a feeder, must be funny.

  6. I love how you captured the three stages of the heron closing his eyes (or should I say ‘eye’). It brought a smile to my otherwise drab face this morning.

  7. I hope he was well and truly reprimanded. No etiquette some of these herons.

    • Indeed. Though I believe some animals cannot resist a nap after lunch. The contrary view was espoused by Noel Coward, who seemed to think there was an exception. 😄
