Watchful Gaze
A black swan peers out from behind its feathers. "That red eye gazing towards us surrounded by a sea of grays and blacks is nothing short of intense and engaging!" commented Your Shot associate photo editor Kristen McNicholas. "An awesome use of simplicity and contrast in a single frame to paint a portrait of this black swan."

I toke this shot as I noticed the sleeping black swan and he noticed me and open his deep ruby red eye. It was a magic moment because the contrast of the black feathers and the red eye catched me from the first time.
