I've got my eye on you.  by onewing

I've got my eye on you.

I am up to my eyes in photography club paperwork and emails today and haven't got time to take a photo.

This one I took at Little Beach a couple of days ago.

Don't you just love that eye!!
Oh Babs....This is wonderful...so glad you shared it! Such a great expression!!!

Fab shot Babs. I should be doing camera club paperwork but am knitting instead. What do your camera club judges say about Pelicans?
June 26th, 2013  
Wonderful shot Babs. Whjerever I go, that eye follows me - it's a bit like the Mona Lisa really...

@eyesmile @joluise @colie Thanks. I loved the expression too.
June 27th, 2013  
@elaine55 Thanks Elaine. Not sure what you mean by what do our judges say about pelicans. Nothing specifically about pelicans. One shot which one of our members took was of a pelican with his mouth wide open as someone was throwing him a fish. Fish almost reaching the pelidcan's open mouth.That got a comment because it was such a great shot.

@steampowered Thanks Paul. It was following me too. He was almost saying 'You can admire, but don't touch!!!"

@gerry @estherhelen @angelat @bugsy Wow, four faves in a row. Don't think I have ever had that before. Thanks so much. Perhaps I should give the credit to the pelican though he posed so beautifully.

@dekky740 @mabuss Thanks so much. I think it was the eye that got me.
June 27th, 2013  
@paulaw Wow, just spotted another fav. Thanks so much. I don't think I have ever had this many for one shot. Thank you Mr Pelican too.
June 27th, 2013  
@christinehosey Thanks Christine.
June 27th, 2013  
@humphreyhippo @gamelee Thanks guys. It was the eye which got me too. He had his eye on me and I suspect if I got much closer he would have nipped me.

@davidgnc Thanks David. I don't often get really pleased with a shot, but this one I did like.

Paperwork is caught up with now.. I am the events co-ordinator at our photo club and I had to put together our calendar for the last 4 months of this year and also come up with some ideas for next year too. I have to find a speaker or workshop for club nights, plus a theme subject for photos each month and also organize a photoshoot outing once a month too. Busy busy!!
June 27th, 2013  
@lafish Thanks Laurie. All the better for catching BIG fish!!!
June 27th, 2013  
@winnedreamer Thanks Nic. He was watching me though!!

@onewing the judges down here don't seem to like Sydney Opera House shots or pelicans so I wondered what yours thought. I personally think if it is a good shot it should be judged by its merits.
June 27th, 2013  
@elaine55 That seems a bit odd. Are they accredited judges? How can you determine that the Opera House or pelicans are any different to any other photo?
June 27th, 2013  
@onewing yes they are accredited and one has even been president of the FCC at one time. Also one judge didn't like cats!
June 27th, 2013  
Fabulous capture,wonderful detail!! Fav!!
June 28th, 2013  
@carolmw Thanks for dropping by Carol and for the fav. We are so lucky here to have so many willing pelicans to pose for us. They are very tame and always make a great subject for photography.
June 29th, 2013  
So sharp on the eye. What an amazing bird!
June 29th, 2013  
@angelar Thanks Angela I love pelicans and their eyes fascinate me. I was really pleased with the eye on this particular bird. He/she posed beautifully.
