Photo Hunt #101; I Spy

Another subject with different points of view.

Firstly, one I took in the desert some time ago. The well camouflaged Rainbow Bee Eater in flight. Normally they are seen from below and beneath their wings they are a brilliant green. In early mornings and evenings they provide sudden flashes of colour as the sun catches their wings in insect-hunting flight.

This one, I spied from above.


Then, as I looked through my collection, I spotted several eyes and I began to wonder at just what they were spying.

Tikaani the Siberian Husky did not look as though she approved of what she was spying.



This pigeon was probably eyeing me off and wondering if I was dangerous.



Peregrine Falcons enjoy Pigeon Pie and this one was waiting for some lunch to fly past. She had spied me but had decided I was not a suitable dining companion.
