CommentI could title this shot "Urban Warrior". I didn't realize that this female Magpie had lost its eye until I looked at the shot on my computer. I like this shot because with the bird looking straight at the camera it has a defiant look - despite its obvious difficulties. The shot is a reminder that life is tough for wild animals - even if they are urban survivors.
