Did you have a nice Easter? I certainly did in Chicago! One of the highlights was visiting this nature preserve by my aunt & uncle's house called Cuba Marsh. It is over 700 acres with many pretty walking trails. I saw so many Tree Swallows which were very hard to photograph. They move so darn fast!
Here's I finally managed to get a shot of 2 Tree Swallows on top of a nest box.
And finally - a shot of Dudley - my cousin's pitbull. I have to admit when I heard he had gotten one I was a little fearful of going to my aunt and uncles. I had preconceived notions of this dog (the media will do that to you.) Well this dog is well trained and a big lover boy! My aunt calls him the "pitiful pitbull" rightly so. The first night while I was watching t.v., he put his head in my lap and went to sleep. It was love!
