1/2 the wildlife doesn't even fit the thread title anyways. few subjects are looking at the camera . even recycling old images to here because there's nothing else to do?

You've made similar comments before, and I'll question it in some cases. I'll note that you can be 90° to the side of some animals such as a rabbit and they will still be looking at you even if their head isn't turned. Prey animals tend to have their eyes placed so they can look at something that is mostly behind them.

So the widgeon in this image could very well be looking at @fotoi

Excellent capture of this common loon, sogs! I love call they make.

Beautiful hen mallard shot, fotoi! Very nice color.

Lovely killdeer capture, Dave. Love that nice low camera angle.

Thanks Mike.

I've always felt that good photographs are good photographs ..... whether they 'fit' in a specific box, or not.
At 71, life's too short to sweat the details. :-)

the spirit of the thread is being abused. I'm done with the subject.

If YOU like the photo, that's all that matters!
