What are you lookin at? Haven't you ever seen a bird take a bath before!
The juxtaposition of people gathered at the fountain base against the dramatic cityscape inspired me to capture this. Like an oasis, unaffected by time of its accelerated surroundings.
Flower captured at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. Selection for a burst of color.
This Robin was really digging in the mud in search for worms, at one point her face & beak were covered in mud.
The Elder King
On this day the majestic lion was resting. Zoo keepers saying he was frail from failing health, my heart saddened as I photographed him. His peaceful yet powerful presence shined. Since I have learned he has passed. Rest in peace mighty one!
The Grackle sure knows how to cool off on a hot summer's day.
