Osprey Eyes - A challenge for BIGMA

One of my customers asked for some new photos of Ospreys with their eyes being the thing you look at twice when you see the photo. I took my binoculars and went to the lake. After watching a couple of them for a while I realized their eyes are one of the things I like best about them. They seem to look right thru you. Find a place to hide while they are fishing and wait.

Now the fun begins. Get the BIGMA to focus on the eye area of the Osprey.

First days results

Right eye looking back



Looking right at the camera



Left eye looking away



A different Osprey from a little farther away and still see the eye



A different Osprey, It seems like the eye look this time is more mellow



On the nest and now I see a hard look

Cool photos Roger. The first two are my favs.

That stare is something fearsome. Glad I'm not prey!!
