Bullseye

Busseye

I guess it’s a fish and not really a bull.  I’m not even sure if it’s male.  Another image from my wanderings around the Shedd Aquarium.

Not Just Greener… Comfier Too.

Not Just Greener

Seems like such a waste of time – breaking through the fence to get to freedom and the greener grass and then just laying down.  But then, time is about all he has.

Great thing about central Illinois – if you look hard, you can spot record-setting metal chickens.

Got My Eye on You

Got My Eye on You

This guy must have been trained by the aquarium staff to show a good profile to the visitors or else he thinks he can check out what’s on the other side of the glass without anyone else noticing.

The trick is to go swimming at night with a special blue light . . . or else go to an aquarium and photograph through the window.

I spent about fifteen minutes watching this guy come out from his shell.  It was quite a struggle and fascinating to see.

Well, it’s either pigeons or rats and the pigeons are more colorful.

Keep Alert

Keep Alert

Like a lot of animals who hang out where a lot of people congregate, this little fellow, who hangs around the trails along the Grand Canyon, doesn’t exactly shy away from people, but is always ready for escape.

Cleared for take-off

cleared for take-off

I was photographing along Michigan Avenue, checking out the spring flowers, when I saw these two birds. It’s hard to say whether I had impeccable timing waiting for the ‘decisive moment’ or I was lucky. Must have been skill :)
