CommentI call this 'Give us a kiss then!' A Willy Wagtail was teasing this calf for quite a while so I watched and waited for something interesting to happen when the calf suddenly lay his head on this rock as if asking the bird to come play with him. These events always make me think theres more going on in animal communication that we humans know about. I enjoyed the contrast between the black of the calf and the bird and the texture and colour of the lichen encrusted rock.
