The "Eyes" of March...



Mixed emotions while shooting this shot.  Loved how this guy was staring right at me so intently.  DIDN'T love how he licked his chops while staring right at me so intently.  Either way, he certainly has a gaze that is captivating, he just needs to learn to keep him mouth shut.  And while I didn't like the idea that this beauty lives behind a fence, I have to admit the fence added great texture and pattern to the composition...as well as framed those eyes perfectly. Lucky for me this week's Project 52 prompt was "The 'Eyes' of March"...because this guy sure has a gorgeous set.

  1. Great eyes! Also love how they are centered on the fence openings so perfectly. Also sad that he is fenced in and not free to roam in his natural habitat.
