wow! Florence...bellissima ed inquietante
Florence: Grazie Nicola ! smileHe was looking at me because I was quite near... maybe a little bit afraid, I guess !!
It is eying us balefully. Clever shot. Assuming that you didn't take this in your living room, these are really good zoo shots.
Florence: Ahah !! Thanks Martin for this funny comment... !!!! smilesmilesmile And thanks for it's nice too !

Florence: I don't think so Petra... because at that moment, he was having good time with his lady... ;-)
The eyes do look sad..the b&w really brings out the texture . Well done

If he was having a good time with his lady, as you say, Florence, then this is the look of him saying "Keep your distance 'cuz I'm busy!" grin

Look at all those textures. Needless to say, I've never seen a hypo this close!
Florence: Well Ginnie, thanks so much for your daily and so nice comments !! smilesmilesmile

Very well captured Florence. A great moment to photograph and a very good choice to go in so close and do a mono conversion. Very well done. Kind regards, Neil.
Florence: Thank you Neil.
je me sens observée, c'est étrange !
Florence: smile
Your choice of crop works for this nice shot.
Florence: Thanks Dotun.

Almost an optical illusion, but I worked out that the front of the head is on the left.

I like pictures like this, that show unusual details of animals. They're somehow more intimate smile
Florence: Many thanks Ellie.
Awesome details. The timing is perfect to get the perfect look
Florence: smile
Apparently you are a amster of details, another great composition!
Florence: Thanks Monika.

Excellent detail. I love this big eye !
Florence: Merci Régis de ta visite !
C'est très bien fait, je me demande si tu n'aurais pas dû garder les deux yeux ?
I love capturing eyes, and if I had grabbed this one.......I would be soooo chuffffed..! OK I'm green!
Florence: smile
Thanks Nigel !
