No, he's looking right next to you - even if just ever so slightly :-) ... it's incredible difficult to get an animal to look 100% straight into the camera and focus on the eyes at the same time.

But after trying a lot I've learned something: Many animals are "flawed" as in "the nose/beak/..." isn't straight with the head, but slightly tilted. This is esp. bad with frogs, there's no angle the head *and* the nose are in alignment towards the camera :-)
