Northwestern University. Had the day been brighter I would have used a narrower aperture and put the spires slightly more in focus.


Sears Tower. One of world's tallest buildings. Good thing the goose was on a hill and kept his head up.


If you click on this shot you will go to my Loyola Park set. The last five photos (at least now they are) show a Goldeneye eating a crayfish.


There is a small owl roost in a city park on the far side of town. I wandered by there today.

Nice series, Steve. Also your gallery is nice and some entertaining shots. I know some cajuns here that would have fought the Goldeneye for that crayfish.:G

P.S. actually they would have eaten both in a gumbo.

Great shots steve, I especially liked the first two where you managed to include a little of Chicago's skyline in with the excellent bird pictures.

I would do that more, but it is amazing how hard it is to make it work. I am always trying to get flying birds with city backdrops, and they always go the other way. Or they get lost in the building background and I delete the shot. If I had a boat so I could be on the lake side of the birds I could do a lot better. Thanks for commenting.

And thanks also Robin, Jerry, Ted. That owl, by the way, is the same kind as I posted the night shots of around Christmas. Different owl though. There are six to ten or so that roost in a very small park on the South side of the city. Most strange.

I know how hard it is, they just dont listen when you tell them fly here, and they go the other way :-)

On the first pic of the gull, I think the spires of northwestern look better a tad out of focus what with the gull being so sharp.
