Sunday Stills: Eyes

OK, I'll admit this one is really more about mouths, since their eyes aren't quite open. But I thought you'd enjoy seeing who hatched out of my last Sunday Stills egg photo.


I'm still not sure what kind of birds these are. The mother is sparrow-like, kind of gray without much marking, no tuft. If I station myself out in the prairie perhaps I'll see more of her coming and going to feed this hungry brood. Too bad none of these are in very good focus.


I thought this butterfly with the big eye looked like part of the Tithonia (Mexican Sunflower) I found him on.


After several shots, I realized the butterfly had expired. The flower was looking like it was on the way out, too. Looks like a male Sleepy Orange, Eurema nicippe.

For more images of eyes, visit Sunday Stills!

I think the bird shot turned out nicely. I've found it is hard to get a decent one of so many birds! Love the wide open mouths!

Nice shot, i loved the Chickz, Like thoz chickz trust and believes its their mom with food and keep their mouth wide open, here eyes are shut, but great emphasis on trust.

Great shot - how wanting it could be for thoz chickz to see their mom who feeds them
