Eye Contact

By teocali
Portrait of a Merlin (Falco columbarius), taken last year at a Birds of Prey workshop in Northumberland. I love the forward facing set of the eyes on birds of prey - they can really fix you with a stare!

Many thanks for your generous support of my last upload - very much appreciated as always Smile
