More crazy eyes.
A Double crested Cormorant stops fishing to check me out. The bird was perfectly lit in warm afternoon light. They have such bizarre eyes, I did a max crop to see the inner structure. Very odd !

60D and 100- 400mm  The crop was shot at 1000th at f5.5 and ISO 1000
(the eye crop shows some great inner detail when viewed at full size.)

Serendipidy, what a beautiful tree and bird.  Very nice shots.  If you're like me you may need to be told to watch you don't get carried away on the ladder!  :)

Jack, Click and rpt...thank you for your kind words.

Yes, my wife scolds me whenever I climb up on the ladder. Whatever it takes to get the shot ;D
