I love this shot I took with a little zoom… the bird remained un-perturbed by my hand over the ledge adjusting the zoom…
I probably would never have been able to see the birds eye so close, or for that matter, the leathery type skin of the cheek, if this bird had of known I was in the hide…
I loved this shot for the artistic shape and form of the feathers… the bird was preening behind its wing… also with a little zoom…
One of the other birds that was in close proximity was watching me with great interest….
One can almost hear it saying “I have my eye on you, try anything funny and I’ll warn my friend !!”
These are just such beautiful birds; and you have captured that.
Thank you so much
I love the caption on the last one. It really does look like he’s giving you the “evil eye” 🙂
Thanks Joanne… definitely keeping a beady eye on me…
Many of your followers have favorite pictures of yours: I’m not good at making decisions, so I enjoy them all.
Thank you Ronnie… I must admit I have trouble deciding myself…
Che primi piani splendidi, è come se tu lo avessi avuto in bracci da tanto sono ravvicinati.
Bravissimo, sono splendidi!!
Thanks Pat… yep got pretty close to this one…
Nice clear close-ups.
Stunning photos, what a wonderful Sunday morning treat.
Thanks Charlie.. glad you enjoyed…
I love its sky-blue eye bulldog!
Is it not something different… almost a colour difficult to describe…
What incredible blue eyes…. ah, such beauty. I do believe you were smitten with each other 😉
How right you are….
Spectacular shots, bulldog. I think she liked you really. 🙂
Thanks Sylvia… I like to think they like me..lol
What’s not to like? 😕
These are spectacular Bulldog!! Love the first one :).
Thank you Cindy…. it was a real close encounter that I never pictured ever having… all I need now is one to try and look in the other side of the lens… now that will be a real close up…. maybe I should try that with the lion next time I see them… lol
Ya, great idea! Silly Bulldog :).
I can honestly say I have never seen a close up photo like your first shot. It is truly unique, with a definite wow factor! – You have shown us some inspiring photos this past week.
Thanks very much Brian… I feel as though I’ve had a good week… only problem is trying to keep the standard….lol… next weeks planned photos should be quite good as well….
that is one close up shot Bulldog. I personally love the third one – so just told you off – that stern “mother” look LOL
Thanks Jan… it was keeping a sharp eye on me… the one below the shelf (in the photo) was unaware of me, as I showed in my last post… but this one could see me and has that look of “move too fast and there will be trouble”
