    My top roo does not like it when I try to take pictures of him. He will hide when I point it anywhere near him, and call alerts. Now this camera has auto focus, can he see the infrared focusing beams? One would think he is being attacked by a hawk,,,,

    A lot of my birds are like that. I can sit out there with a rifle during fox season no problem, but as soon as I pull out my phone it's like end of days lol

    They also instinctively run from the fishing net too, which is weird.

    Well at least I am not the only one with a rooster that does not like to be photographed. And forget the butt "no way thats personal dude!" But thats what I really want, he has the fattest rear I ever seen on a rooster, wider than my hens!
