2023—Eye Contact

I love it when a bird, or any creature for that matter, looks at me straight down the lens barrel. That eye contact really makes an image and it connects the viewer to that bird. The Snail Kites that were hunting for snails near the airboat were so close to us at times that we probably could have reached out and touched them as they flew past. This male’s eyes show such an intensity and he was so close to me that I couldn’t fit his outstretched wings in the image.
