The Eyes Have IT (Two Photographs)

To view more of my photography please click on

I took quite a few shots of this grackle. The mirror in my Nikon camera is a bit noisy, and it’s not surprising that this has an impact on my subjects. Birds in particular can be disturbed by the noise of the mirror. In these shots, taken within seconds of each other, you will see that the appearance of being glared at, is not the same as being glared at. Taking a number of shots while waiting for just that right moment when the glare is straight on is worth it. Eyes have impact.

  2. These guys remind me of a line in Christmas Story:
    Scut Farkus! What a rotten name! We were trapped. There he stood, between us and the alley. Scut Farkus staring out at us with his yellow eyes. He had yellow eyes! So help me, God! Yellow eyes!
