Green Eye


Photography can be as tricky as the Internet because they tell only the partial or selected truth. This is very right when the green eye of an aged monster started to shine.
 
This took place when both I and a fallen tree clicked for the first time on last Sunday, when I explored the other end of a through hole found on its pale wrinkled face, using a close up shot with shallow depth of field.
 
The hollow eye shone like an emerald.

How wonderful photography can, at the same time, manipulate our mental imagery.

Cool capture, Rainfield! It does look like the eye and the side of a critter. Hopefully not a monster. Have a great day!

Perfect shot, lucky you took it sweet & fast coz it was slowly turning green & can hear it murmuring.. "Don't make me angry, you wouldn't like me when I'm angry"

Wow..fantastic and amazing photo!
Looks like some types of critter's eye!

Is that why it takes you so long to get out of the jungle to post?

This really does look like a big green eye. This is a marvelous photo, and I'm glad the green-eyed monster didn't get you.

Is it messing with our minds or expanding them? I'll choose the latter. I love the emerald eye.

Diane AZ said...

Looks like the grand daddy of all lizards!

That's amazing. It glows.

betchai said...

so very beautiful, and yes, so many would wonder where is that or how did you see that, the answer is because you take deeper look and have that super creative imagination to make those often passed by a Terastar!

Your words are so true.
Love the result of your mental imagery.
I hope I would have imagined the eye, too.
