the sun had just come up over the hill so I was looking almost right into it - made shooting a challenge, that's for sure... We haven't seen him so close again, but they blend so well we may have just missed...
He knew I was there! I was photographing him from inside at first and then he moved a bit further up the hill and lay down where I couldn't see him so I went out onto our front porch. He eventually stood up and did all the usual kitty stretching with me right there - about 50 feet away The "chippendale shot" was him staring right at me - he knew I was there and he was "working it" for sure!!!
LOL - I understand about wind direction/scent I don't know for sure but the predominant direction would have been from him toward me (me downwind) but that time of morning the wind is usually really still... I know that the deer can see us when we're standing by the windows so I'm sure he could too
surprisingly it is just the house! and a husband that looks out the windows often We do have a marvelous place at the end of a road with 1000's of open rolling hills with free range cattle on them so lots of places for the coyotes, deer, etc. to roam...we have put some food out upon occasion with our nightvision trail camera set up but we got more skunks and raccoons than foxes so we don't do that any more
