Ha that happens sometimes... I always say look right though the camera not into it... lol sometimes I forget the camera is in front of my eye. I'm not sure if shooting left eye makes a difference as my right is completely covered.

Hey Jeff! Which Lens Coat blind are you trying? I'm looking at a few options and would love your opinions :-)

Beautiful Grossbeak! A species that maybe once a year stops by. I have that Lenscoat blind, like it, would be great this time of year
but in summer it is way way hot but I think they have a thinner one out now for your balmy conditions Ha!

Snowy Owl

Not a lot of snow around, despite being January 1.
This snowy owl finds a patch from which she can look down and around.

And another looks down her nose at me :(
Yet another flat light morning - I wasn't able to stick around until the sun came out later.

High stepping! Love the composition. That bird is very confident in his striding!
