My sister, her husband and I once stopped to observe a snake, which turned around in the act of fleeing and consented to be observed when we stopped walking and discussed it in an interested way. I assume it was also taking us in. Maybe it's pathetic fallacy, and maybe there are simply different modes of observation.

This is art by J.T. Steiny, who has many visual observations and good advice to delight the eye on his highly recommnded website. It looks to me like an aging Pan who is still delighted by the creatures around him. It brought to mind (some of you may have heard this story before) the time I looked at a dragonfly which appeared to be actively taking me in, ie, rotating its head as if to gather information while perched on a leaf.
