Featured Flickr Chicago Bears Image

Just a little something different, occasionally I’m going to feature a random photograph from Flickr that is tagged with “Chicago Bears”. I think it’s a great way to display other people’s creativity, whether that is photography, painting, drawing, or some other kind of flickr-applicable art.

I just think it might be a fun way to be a unique Chicago Bears Blog

Hope you all dig it!

A funny old bird isthe pelican, runs the familiar limerick, alludingto its ability to store in its beak food enoughfor a week. When we realize that the enor-mous pouch attached to its grotesque-lookingbill is capable of holding several quarts ofwater, this statement does not seem exaggera-ted.
