“This is the secret of observation; stillness, silence and apparent indifference to some instinctive way these wild creatures learn to distinguish when one is or is not intent upon them in a spirit of enmity; and if very near, it is always the eye they watch. So long as you observe them as it were, from the corner of the eyeball, sideways, or look over their heads at something beyond, it is well.”

~ Richard Jefferies, The Gamekeeper at Home
