Featured Flickr Bears Photo

This is just a little something out of the ordinary, sometimes I’m going to post 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 Bears Fanatics dig it!
