Check up on the fall colours at Jackson Park... not yet
While I was working from home today, I could hear the winds blowing quite fiercely. Worried that the wind might blow down all the leaves from Jackson Park, I biked to the park after work. When I got there, it appeared that most of the leaves still had not turned their colours yet (even though most of the trees on the streets are red by now). I did a quick walk around the lake and headed back home for dinner right after.
A hint of red.
Leaves on the trees are still green.
But ones on the ground are red.
Leaves brightened by the sunshine.
Some red parts.
The trees in direct sunlight turn red faster than ones in the forest.
Great Blue Heron hunting in the water. Haven't photograph one in a while.
