Interesting. I find it's hard to get close to them when they are on the ground, they are fairly wary. But on a gentle slope, they cruise buy soaring the ridge lift, and get quite close as it's their natural environment. On a paraglider, they treat you as one of the gang in ridge lift and thermals, but hard to get telephoto shots then!
