Last year I visited Perth (Western Australia) for the first time. Its as far from Perth to Melbourne as it is from London to Istanbul - so it a decent trip.
One evening whilst walking by the Swan River I noticed this Black-Shouldered Kite - and it seemed it noticed me! This has to be one of the most clear cases I have been involved in where I was both watching and watched. I was bird watching and the bird was human watching.
These have become some of my favourite images I have taken.
You can see the blog post that originally featured these images here, and you can look at the most recent of my posts by clicking the Paying Ready Attention link on the RHS of the screen.
