Bangkok Images, Do you ever get the feeling someone is watching you?  I get this feeling a lot when out photographing wildlife and zooming in on an image I sport this face peering at me from over 200 meters away. Is there any doubt this African Crown Crane is looking directly at me and showing curiosity?

Do you ever get the feeling someone is watching you?  I get this feeling a lot when out photographing wildlife and zooming in on an image I sport this face peering at me from over 200 meters away. Is there any doubt this African Crown Crane is looking directly at me and showing curiosity?

Have you ever wondered in an environment that contains perhaps 1000's of  creatures, just how many of them are watching your every move?  Something to consider during your next hike in the wilderness.  I've watched lions and tigers stalking cars and at places like Safari World where they've even learned to come around the rear of your vehicle and take advantage of the blinds spots!

Sometimes it's not about image quality, it's more about something in the image that stops and makes you think a bit.  This image is significant because it did just that to me, it made me stop my work and reflect a bit on my environment and how the residents of that environment might be seeing me. 

 

Usually a bird appears to be looking off in the distance and sometimes I'll go home and fire up Google to see if they can see from the side, or rear.  Usually you'd think they take no notice of you.  But on this day I felt the shiver of coldness run down my back and I become aware of hundreds of eyes watching my every move.
