A penny for your thoughts.....We wonder what is going through the minds of beasts such as this. A bird of prey with a fixed gaze...is it just a look for food?

Spent the day at Escot, wonderful grounds and much to take in...especially the falconry display.

Hi Steve,
What a lovely tight crop for this bird's portrait to let us admire its face features thoroughly!
Very descriptive and nicely lit.
A beautiful frame to enclose this neat work.
Well done,

Hi Steve
Excellent portrait of the bird. Nice tight crop and I like the black bg.

Hi Steve, I like the tight crop with the dark bg. Looks like a young bird,still has the sharp stare of an older bird. Fiona

Hello Steve

This is a gallery piece for sure. What can one say with a beautiful image such as this. The eye makes the whole image work. nice


Excellent work Steve, and the perfect title!
I love the close up concentrating on just the head and shoulders.
As for the eye? You got the colour and the catchlight, and he certainly looks to be having a good think!!
Tfs, regards Jean.

Great photo of this majestic bird, beautiful details on the plumage and the eye, bravo

Hi, Steve. Nice portrait of the falcon, well composed to bring out the details. Nature has endowed these birds of prey with all the senses to hunt for food. The colors of the eye contrast nicely with the color and texture of the eye. Cheers.

Bonjour Steve,

Une image époustouflante de part les détails et ce fond noir. Magnifique.
