    A wonderful capture in and of itself. Kind of falls under the “if looks could kill” category. Love the black and white and the vignette. Well done.

  • Thanks Karirose, I agree its a really menacing look.

    Top notch natural history image, almost malevolent gaze and the B&W adds to the mood.

  • Thanks Hotspur :)

    Fabulous photography. The look in its eye is priceless and the tonal qualities are outstanding for the subject.

  • Thanks Kurt, the look makes the shot
