I like the stump shot if I'm honest Mike love the other too, but I see so many shorties in flight it's nice getting other images
Ha and yup cool light with a wildlife subject and time tis a juggle isn't it.

A question mate eye colour is the variance down to processing? how the camera renders. Stumpy's:D eyes look a bit too orange to me???

Hi Stu, I noticed the difference as well. I didn't make any differences in the colours in PP. It is a different bird and the second one was in dimmer light, but apart form that I have no explanation

I think it's the light Mike?? more than individual birdz iris variation............ I went off looking at my own shorties as a result,not really draw a conclusion as of yet.

I've seen this before where the eyes can look a slightly different colour and think it could be down to iris size

If you look at the 1st shot, whilst the bird is hunting, the iris looks smaller. In the 2nd shot the bird is in more of a defence pose, tufts slightly raised and iris enlarged,makes them look more aggressive just my thoughts :)
