I guess so, but not nearly as much fun.

Isn't it more
likely that you happened to lie down near a favoured perch or that it didn't see
you until you moved?

A few years ago I solo climbed Mt
Domain (near Tidbinbilla). I stretched out for a lunchtime nap near the
summit. After a while I heard a crash in the tree above me. Jumping
up, I startled a wedge-tail that had just landed there. He promptly flew
off, slowly gliding down to Tidbinbilla.
In hindsight I wonder if he
thought that I was carrion and that if I had stayed still would he have floated
down and taken a bite? That would have been quite something although I
doubt that I could have held my nerve that long.
Could the experts advise
if he really was getting ready for a homo sapiens
