I love when they peek out like this! Great shot!

Patrick Belardo said...

Me too! When I've seen them like this in the wild, they usually have their eyes closed. So it was nice to see one with its eyes open.

Hmmm, does this one have whitish eyes or is it the exposure?

Patrick Belardo said...

Jochen, it's probably the exposure and the bright sun in its face.

Jochen said...

It makes for a cool effect though!
