To one extent or another, we all have our own little windows on the world.



  1. The lighting is so odd in this photo…. what a adorable creature! He’s a very handsome fellow – he also seems to be looking at your lens like he knows it. :o)

  2. Thankfully, for a portion of the time, my window appears to be through your eyes.

  3. aullori,

    He has just one question on his mind: “Does he see me?”

    I always consider our encounter a success if he is still sitting there when I leave.

  4. Pinhole,

    I’m very pleased if you enjoy seeing some of this beautiful country and its natural inhabitants that I love so much.

  5. People would be surprised how many times they walk buy a scene like that. I was walking thru the woods this spring when I stopped for a rest I had this urge to look down, there standing below me was about ten turkey poults, completely hidden from everything but me. I slowly backed out and about that time the hen started to cackle and the birds quickly followed her sound, it’s funny how well they can hide sometimes. Nice image Terry.

  6. Yes, they usually know when they’re blending in and often their lives depend on it. My eyes are very well trained to see the critters but I still wonder how many I miss: I know it’s lots.
