Love the spotted eye on this cabbage white butterfly.
When visitors on the trail stop and stare, so does my camera.
This is a very popular park so to conserve the ground, stairs were built to the platforms atop Starved Rock.
View from atop Starved Rock of the lock and dam on the Illinois River.
American white pelicans and neotropic cormorants on the Illinois River.
Passengers loading on the tour boat.
Barges approaching the lock.
Islands in the Illinois River as well as markers keeping river traffic away from them.
I shot an image of a boat on the river and when I zoomed in I found a bow fishermen.
In another area of the river this fish bit the bait at the end of a fishing rod and was then scooped from the water.
