Yes, they can see you moving around!

Osprey hunting at Sunset

This is a perfect example of how having clothing that helps blend you into the Sky/Background can help you get a few more strikes. Here is a very low light condition; the Osprey is way above them by at least 20 feet, if not more...

Now, look at the water under him as those fish are hitting the eject handle and leaving! They saw that small Osprey from almost straight above with their Field of View, even underwater and in near darkness!

Do you think they might (also) see you in broad daylight standing up on a Bow Casting Platform, making a lot of movement on a cast like a bird flapping its wings?

Ever wonder why some wading birds are white or blue as they slowly wade the waters, grabbing small fish? God's version of camouflage (visual stealth) since the fish look straight up as those colors help the birds fade into the background of the sky. 😉

Now, the full-sized version of these same shots above can be found by clicking Here if you would like to order copies for your Home, Office, or even on other items. The first one is one of my all-time favorite pictures, and when posted there, Instagram and others did not do it much justice by cropping it down so much!

And many would be surprised to know what I took that picture with. It goes to show it's the camera settings and the eye that frames the picture that does 85% of the work and not the cost of the camera 😊

In the meantime,
