Weekly Photo Challenge:Reflections

face of the cooperFriends, the reflections in this Cooper Hawk’s eye show off his brilliant yellow eye.  He is a juvenile and when he is one year old, this eye color will shift to an orange, then to red as he ages further.  The shadow from the supraorbital ridge above his eye makes him look very fierce.  I love the feathering patterns around that reflected highlight in his eye, a reflection of the sky. til Tomorrow MJ
