I’m ready for my close-up

This bird was having fun playing in a fountain and when I produced a camera to get his picture he obliged by looking right into the lens.

This image really helps me see the evolution of birds from their pre-historic ancestors.

Looks like the bird has a need to question you.

Wow what a wonderful shot. I always feel lucky when I can get something like this. I love the way he's looking at you.

Wow, those eyes! I'm not sure if that is a pose or a threat.
I used to call these birds 'parking lot birds', because that's where I always saw them. But I do believe you have captured the female Grackle.

He looks like he was about to ask you: "Now, are you satisfied?" Great shot.

I think he is checking out your camera and lens.

That is a great shot, cross between cool and scary lol.

I think that bird is posing for you, one of his favorite friends not in his fine, feathered group!
