The photographer reflected in the falcon’s eye.

This week, Cheri and WordPress challenged us to post a selfie. Mine is small and subtle, but one from a favorite genre: images reflected in eyes.


Thanks to Cheri Lucas Rowlands and WordPress for the Weekly Photo Challenge: Selfie.

Thanks once more to Praire Birder Charlotte for the Feathers on Friday challenge.


A selection of my heron and flower photos is now available at the Five Crows Gallery in Natick, MA. Drop in and see the work of the many wonderfully creative artists who show there when you’re in the area.

Five Crows is on FaceBook. To give the gallery a visit, please click here.

Remember: Walk softly and carry a long lens.™

    • Thanks, I’m glad you like it! Ordinarily I’m not a big fan of getting so close to wild creatures that I can find my reflection in their eyes. In ths case, though, the falconer had brought birds to a nature center program for the public, and so we weren’t endangering them. He has been raising falcons and bald eagles from eggs for a couple of decades. Now that’s a job I’d love to have.

  1. How extremely clever of you!

  2. EXCELLENT and very clever! 🙂

  3. Can’t believe you stuck an arrow in that guy’s eye!! 🙂


  4. I like those kinds of selfies, too! Much better than turning the camera on oneself!

  5. Even if he was used to it..It is great!!!

  6. Oh my Babsje – now THAT is a creative response 🙂 Well done.
