The eyes actually look as though she has cateracts.
That is one scary lady wouldn't like to meet her on a dark night! But what a photograph - Brilliant!

Very striking environmental portrait, the composition is very effective and the subject is really something else! Very nice shot.

She looks fierce Roger, I'll keep away from her hole in the ground. Wonderful shot though.
