Lens-Artists Photo Challenge – The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow

This week, guest host Ana from Anvica’s Gallery, recalls the song ‘The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow‘ as the theme for the Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

Last week we were blessed with some exceptionally fine weather for November and everyone seemed to be enjoying the warmer temperatures. There also appeared to be some leg and wing stretching exercises in progress in preparation for those long winter days ahead. The first two images were captured at Spring Valley Nature Center in Schaumburg where there were a few mallard ducks, a couple of frogs that refused to be photographed and a lone turtle doing some calisthenics.

The creatures at Brookfield Zoo were certainly making the most of this late autumn reprieve and were soaking up the rays with evident pleasure.

Meanwhile, at the Chicago Botanic Garden, a tardy heron, who should probably have already been on his way south, stopped for a wash and brush up and gave his wings a bit of a stretch while an armada of geese sailed calmly by.

The sun may come out tomorrow but it probably won’t get much warmer and will definitely get a lot colder than this in the months to come.

  1. Thank you for a sunny gallery before winter sets in. The animals surely look happy about the weather – the bear looks particularly relaxed! I guess that is what the sun does to us humans too – make us relax and enjoy the light and warmth.

  2. Everyone loves the sunshine and you’ve caught all the animals expressing their love of it too. They’re very quiet, calm and reflective photos – just as one feels when relaxing in the sunshine- even the heron is so relaxed he’s let his wing drop!

    • Thanks, Amy! I was surprised to see the heron hanging around this late in the year. They’ve usually all flown south by now but I was glad that he stopped by long enough for me to take a few shots.

  3. Wow, you’re right Sue, chances are there aren’t too many days like this ahead in Schaumburg! How great that you were able to take advantage of this one. Not surprising that these beautiful creatures were enjoying the day as much as you were! Wonderful response to the challenge.

  4. I love how you have raised the challenge, I can feel the sun in each of your images. The lion and the bear certainly show how they are enjoying the sun. Thank you very much for your participation. 🌞

    • Thanks, Indira! I’m hoping to revisit the zoo this week as they will be closing down from the beginning of January till the end of February and I want to make the most of my membership. The sun may be out but it won’t be anywhere near as warm as it has been.
