An exhibit of mindfulness and peace. Look in the eyes. Focused and rare. She never flinched and allowed me to capture her beauty inside this image.
Rarely do I photograph animals in captivity. Here, I made an exception. My last day in California in 2014 I had the chance to visit the LA Zoo. The bird had been injured and was now being well cared for.
I could not resist the stunning eyes and the perfect background to show off this bird’s features. Nothing distracted his stare. I circled the creature until I felt I had the perfect shot.
