wow, amazing footage. Our feathered peers are beautiful but it is true that sometimes they are not looking where the are flying or clearing their turns. We've all seen this. Like in video, I have done the same thing, yell when you feel they aren't looking. This seems to help, but you have to do it soon enough. Also, the potential for a tangle is probably alot higher with a paraglider than a hang glider.

Someone sent this two weeks after I almost collided with a hawk that had entered my thermal turning in the opposite direction. It made me glad I have a rigid wing!
