Blink: Redhead


Fishing the local lake this morning I again encountered the lone Redhead. He seems to prefer one particular area. During each visit I find him in within a one hundred yard stretch of shoreline. Never passing up an opportunity to photograph this migratory straggler I again fired a number of frames as he swam along the shore trying to put some distance between us.

While reviewing this image I noticed that something looked strange about his eye.



A closer examination revealed that he was blinking.

I like those little surprises ...when you look at a photo you've taken and there's something in it that wasn't intended.

It's fun to catch them blinking. I have a few Owl photos like that. He's really pretty.

I like to catch birds closing their eye lids. Don't think I have ever caught a duck or goose though. This one is a handsome fellow.
