Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #205: The Eyes Have it

This week, Tina leads LAPC: The Eyes Have it.

One technique of photographing animals suggests composing first and then moving the AF point to the eye. When it comes to capturing birds, I rarely have time to compose. Most of time, I depend on my Canon AI focus if I remember to turn it on.

Birds with eyes on the side of their head can see forward and sideways at the same time.

Mr. B is always cooperative and gentle, especially when I get close to him with my camera.

Horses have a range of vision of about 350°.

“I see ya!” This image below was captured through the woods (Rocky Mountain NP) with my long lens:

Butterfly eyepots are interesting. Some believe that their large eyespots can intimidate predators and thus reducing predation.

My macro lens serves like my third eye; it captures beautiful details of flowers and leaves.

When I saw this lizard from his back, I slowly got down. He then turned his head back and paused a second. Luckily, I was able to capture his eye from a distance.

Green anoles are known by many names, but they are also known for their ability to change colors from green to brown and back again.

Tina encourages us to share photos and stories of “The Eyes Have it”. Click to see her stunning photos and learn how she captured those images. Hope you’ll join us. Make sure to link to Tina’s post.

  1. Wonderful set. Yes, birds have fantastic vision and see you long before you see them. That’s why they are so hard to spot. When you get a great bird shot like that one you have here, I wonder whether the bird had already decided you weren’t a danger. Certainly true to lizards, they moment you make a sudden movement, they bolt.
