This photo was taken around 3pm in the afternoon having a window as only source of light. The subject was quite relaxed and decided to play for the camera. The result was this very uncommon eye expression. I was quite happy with it as I believe I manage to capture the expontaniety of the moment with a technically correct image exposure.
"The kiwi behaviour" title. New Zealanders are also known as Kiwis and since we are in Australia there is an ongoing (friendly) rivalry between the two nations. A few people mention about the peculiar aspect of the kiwi's (also an extinct bird) behaviour.
