eagle scout.

1. When I saw this handsome bird I pulled over and was delighted to see a lot of eagle activity by the Des Moines River.

2. some nice in flight action.

3. A little blurry but fuckin' majestic.

4. An immature bald eagle (in back) and an adult eagle stand on chunks of ice. I feel like there should be penguins...although there was a pelican swimming around.

sorry for grossing you out.

I can't believe I haven't posted this photograph yet. I took it about a year ago. Its a dead deer with a dead possum inside the dead deer's abdominal cavity. Just like a tur-duck-en! How did it get there?

Three Guesses

1. The possum was eating from the deer carcass when, suddenly, the carcass was hit by a drunk driver...instantly killing the possum while giving him a free dead deer coffin.

2. The possum was eating intestines and died of old age.

3. A deer ate a possum for some reason and died when the possum tried to tear its way out. Just like in Aliens.

Isn't nature beautiful?

Bridgeport, Chicago. If you take a photo of this church all of the locals call you a tourist. So I guess I'm a tourist.Power of Selection III, Western Exhibitions Gallery. Chicago, IL. Curated by Ryan Travis Christan. http://www.westernexhibitions.com/

The Mexican fine Arts Museum. Pilsen, Chicago. Virginia and I got lucky, it was the Day of the Dead exhibit, many fine offrendas for us to admire.

Chinatown, Chicago. These fish scared me. They were horrifying.
