Dear Lawrence,..The 2007 photo of the meadowlark flying from the barbed wire was taken at the former Farmland Industries property. It was before the property was purchased by the city of Lawrence. The site is now mostly cleared, and Lawrence city commission is expected to move forward with plans to convert the property to a business park. ..The original photo was actually a mistake. I was waiting for the meadowlark to turn around and look at me � but he decided to fly away. I was slow on the trigger, and half of his body ended up out of frame. Happy accident. Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. Let's hope the business park project finds some of that luck, too. Photo by Doug Stremel
