You can say that about half the subjects in this thread. An eye is visible, but the gaze is somewhere else.

I have been out using the R5 with the native 100-500 lens and must admit I love using it!

All four of these shots are Terrific, Trevor! Your 100% crop of the giraffe did not cause any loss of image quality (at least from my point of view).

This is a super nice capture of the wild bobcat, Paul! It sorta has an expression of contentment along with authority.

The Takahe: one of only 400 left in the world

The Takahe are flatland, and moorland-dwelling birds that have suffered badly since the arrival of humans: from loss of habitat, predation by introduced predators and hunting. They are critically endangered and are bred from captivity to be let into the wild - mostly in the isolated valleys on Fiordland at the bottom of NZ's South Island.

These look very similar to the very common Pukeko (below), but they are actually unrelated - one could say that it is an example of evolution coming to the came conclusion by different paths. The Pukeko are more swamp dwellers, so they are lighter in body mass and have longer legs with reverse knee joints.

This is all Quite interesting, Trevor. It's sad to see such a beautiful species of birdlife on the edge of extinction. Both your photographs are very nicely done.
