Sometimes I wonder who is watching who between me and the birds. There have been very few times when I wonder if some of those talons may, just possibly, dig into my flesh at some times. I normally get a tingle down the spine from being able to take a really good close up photo. There have been a couple of times, not many, when I get a different sort of tingle - that slight feeling of nervousness. Here are a couple of recent photos head on, none of which really gave me that worrying feeling, although the Black-breasted Buzzard certainly checked me out nice and close after the photo below.
