Never get into a staring contest with an animal especially if its a top predator. After this single shot I immediately backed off. I had a feeling the eagle was sizing me up for his next meal, or maybe he was just curious at the lens that was as sharp as his eyes.

  1. How close were you to have gotten this shot? Such intensity; let’s hope it’s the latter, my cat has begun to recognize a camera also and actually does something I’d like to call posing.

      I was three meters aways just outside the aviary cage where I was able to poke in the lens at a small opening. This was a zoomed in shot. Good thing cats can pose. With predators, everyone I think is a meal. 🙂

      • Oh wow, I’d thought this was in wild life. That I’d tip my hat to you and possibly say you’re slightly wonkers.
        Great shot nonetheless! Didn’t betray the cage at all (:
        I do so digress my cat regards me as a meal on certain occasions. His belly pouch can speak for itself.

  3. Oh, never mind, that was a temporary glitch. I like the light in the eye. Yes, owls give me the eye and it is a bit unnerving.

      Its a bit uneasy when people stare at you, but with animals (and predators at that) you couldn’t help but feel like a prey. 🙂 thanks Jane!

  4. This definitely seems like it was in wildlife. I was curious how you took it as well. Really cool shot!!
