The Eyes Have It!

One of the key components of wildlife photography is ‘the eyes’ of the animal. In the majority of cases getting the eyes in sharp focus and ‘eye’deally with a ‘catch light’ in them is the aim of every nature photographer the world over. I am no exception and many times people have commented on how amazed they are with how I’ve caught the eyes of my subject. Not necessarily realizing or thinking along the lines of the rules of photography, but because they can see the intensity in the animal or how the eyes are ‘telling a story’. That’s what I like about this shot of a mother grizzly bear I captured a while back in SE Alaska. I love the intense glare in her eyes and how they immediately take you off wondering what is she thinking or what is the story behind those strong eyes. (See also Queen of Pack Creek).
