The six secrets of successful stalking:

Move Quietly

Learn to "freeze" and keep 100% still.

Break up your outline

Study your background and dress to blend in to the background.

Avoid the skyline

Take off your watch and other shiny articles that reflect the sun and the moon.

Look around not over rocks - look through bushes

Do not form a silhouette.

Exploit the shadows

Shadows conceal and break up your outlines.

Avoid water

Your reflection may betray you!
