Barrington, Illinois — Crabtree Nature Center

My fiancee and I walked out on a trail through a large prairie. We stopped near a small grove of trees along a small brook.  The Yellowthroat was singing in the top of a small, dead tree.  I walked off the trail to get a better look while my fiancee sat on a bench in the shade.
