View Full Version : He's watching me . . .

I very carefully sneaked up on this one a number of weeks back. I know he saw me from a long way off. He let me get fairly close, but he was getting a little nervous. I took what I could get and let him be. He was just trying to catch his supper . . .

It seems, you ruffled his feathers a little bit ;-) - very good catch.

Yep . . I think I did actually. He was watching me intensely and as I would try and move he would tip forward a bit. He was just about to launch. The very light breeze would ruffle his feathers, so I knew he was at the point of leaving if I moved closer. He sat tight for quite a while, but was very on edge with me. I let him be to finish looking for dinner.
