So I guess these folks must have led an interesting and full "wild life" as this is in the "Wildlife Forum".:-);-)a

Cheers

Dennis

PS - something I learned from my own experience here.;-)a

that must be a wild cow and kitty cat then. I was told that although many subjects that actually aren't looking at you(camera) are indeed SECRETLY looking at you(camera).

I've always taken this thread to mean that the subject appears to be saying (or thinking): "Are you (photographer/camera) looking at me?" So it would not be a requirement for the subject to be looking at the camera, although often that would be the case. They could appear to be bashfully, or fearfully, or even flirtatiously, looking away, for example. As long as it looks like that's what they're thinking.


Still waiting for the wisdom they promised would be worth getting old for.

I suppose that is one interpretation, although that's not was intended. Here's what was written:

You've made similar comments before, and I'll question it in some cases. I'll note that you can be 90° to the side of some animals such as a rabbit and they will still be looking at you even if their head isn't turned. Prey animals tend to have their eyes placed so they can look at something that is mostly behind them.

So the widgeon in this image could very well be looking at @fotoi

You may have a point about wild "kitty cat" but the cow should stay as per the wild life forum description:
The forum is for "All of the critters that walk, crawl, hop, swim or swing that you won't let live in the house."

Why don't you report the offending posts using report button if the posts bother you so much?

I've always taken it to mean that the subject is looking at the camera. Your interpretation requires that the creature's gaze appears to embody a questioning attitude. That's hard to establish for something like a duck.

Quite set of choppers on this ol' boy, Paul. Nice close-up portrait shot! You shot him at 356mm, so I know you kept a safe distance.:-P

This Long-legged Greenfly is wild, alive and looking at me (well, at the macro lens at least :-)), so I'm going to assume it meets the entry criteria.;-)a

Cheers

Dennis

Thanks Mike, its a bit hit and miss with these insects as more often than not, the pre-flash spooks them and I end up with a blurred fly, exiting the frame via a top corner.:-)

Cheers
