I've Got My Eye On You

Gwaii Haanas National Park Reserve, British Columbia

This Black Oystercatcher ( Haematopus bachmani ) was resting and didn't seem alarmed by me, my camera and telephoto lens. However, it kept one eye on me just to be sure. There was an abundance of Black Oystercatcher's to photograph in Haida Gwaii. When I looked closely at my photos, I noticed that they have a slight imperfection in their eyes. They have bright orange eyerings, yellow eyes and black pupils. The black pupils aren't circular, they bleed a little bit of black into each of their yellow eyes.
