Artist's Description

An extreme close up of the eye of a Toco Toucan – (Ramphastos toco).
I had planned to do this shot in my head while I was driving to Tropical Birdland in Leicestershire.
I copied the idea from a shot of a Hyacinth Macaw from world renown photographer Heather Angel.
The 1st time I EVER copied someone else’s shot….but I just HAD to do it.
It took me about 20 to 30 attempts to get this shot after he kept moving about & nibbling my rubber lens hood to bits…..lol.
So I eventually stuck a grape in the mesh & he had trouble getting at it….he he…..but he stayed still long enough for me to get a good shot.
I could not get close enough to get the EXACT crop I wanted so I had to crop it a teeny weeny bit in PS……feel like I cheated a bit……I HATE to crop.
So there you have it…..
