Here's lookin' at you, kid

Sometimes the animals have no idea I'm shooting them, but every now and then I get a stare-down. Some of these are repeats and I apologize for that. I desperately need to get out with my camera, but the weather is being really bratty.









Sharing with Saturday's Critters. Thanks, Eileen!

A deer in the, umm, camera lens! :) Great shots Gail -- hope your weather brightens up this week.

You never need to apologize for repeats of this caliber. The blue jay tickled me, as did the dragonfly with what appears to be a toothy grin.

All wonderful photos, Gail, and I know what you mean about the weather being bratty! ;)

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

All these guys are really either staring you down or just posing beautifully. Love every one.

Wonderful series of images, Gail! I love the looks on their faces, especially the Blue Jay. Thank you for linking up the critter party. Enjoy your week ahead!

hootnonny said...

Amazing! Love the dragonfly's bug mouth!

Kerry said...

That dragonfly is crazy! These are wonderful. When I try to take pics of birds they take one look at me and immediately fly away. It is very disheartening.

Hilary said...

My goodness, Gail. Don't apologize for your beautiful photography. When you can pluck images (even previously posted ones) and put them together with a theme like that.. it's pure magic. The hummingbird and dragonfly are incredible.

Brian King said...

Been there myself. Great photos! Some animals look funny straight on!

Evelyn S. said...

Love all of these close-up, in-your-face portraits! Favorites are the hummingbird, the dragonfly, and the deer with all those fine hairs!

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Oh no, the dreaded stare-down! LOL

I love that deer's eyelashes and or the extra hairs being so sharp in the focus. wow.

Yes, fun T for the fun purse intro.

Have a tremendous week my friend, and see ya tomorrow. ♥
