Fake Lashes by pasttheirprime

Fake Lashes

Making the most of the Bank Holiday weekend, today I (rather optimistically) slapped the enormously heavy Minolta G 80-200 f2.8 on the Sony, combined with a x2 teleconverter in the hope of spotting a buzzard or two.

It's a standing joke in my family that buzzards can spot this white lens from miles away, and deliberately stay away each time I take it out. This is especially amusing as it weighs approximately half a metric tonne and I end up lugging it around for nothing...

So today was much the same - we did see one buzzard being seen off by a crow, but it was through trees and only made a very brief appearance. I ended up taking a couple of shots of the dog, a few of the new-born lambs and this one of a calf, which I think nicely emphasizes why I don't normally bother with this focal length!

Worth posting though I feel - if only for the swirl and those gorgeous lashes!

Thanks for looking
Stu

Lovely lashes. The same happens to so many of us.

Love the shot and, as you say, the lashes.
You could try wrapping some camouflage material over your lens if only to prove that it isn’t the white colour that is keeping the buzzards at a distance. ( Light weight material if possible LOL)

A camo-scarf, a chair and patience to out smart those Buzzards

A beautiful capture - I see kindness compassion and feeling on their eyes, no matter their age.
And the curly wispy eyelash’s make me smile.
I love this photo very much
