Incidentally, it was also the feast of Saint Valentine
I spent Sunday afternoon at Starved Rock State Park, as did many other people and dogs. I am most proud of this photo because I managed not to die while taking it:
There's a whole set here that will be finished eventually.
I also saw a bald eagle perched on a tree stump in the Illinois River, but sadly my newest semifunctional used camera is not suitable for wildlife photography.
