Here in Trinidad, I recently found out that having camouflage gear is illegal - something to do with impersonating the military. I found this out when I was stopped at customs and the guy pulled out my camo baseball cap and went to town on me. Now I'm pretty sure it's only clothing but I'm still a little paranoid about it after the encounter with the customs man.
I have a woodland camo lenscoat on my 400/5.6 and today I was out on my balcony shooting the offshore power boat race when a number of helicopters did close in fly-byes of the apartment block. This guy gave me a turn!

Opens up the side door as he approaches me

Parks right in front of my balcony and waves hello!

I can't tell you how relieved I was that he was just showboating and not after me! They all look pretty chilled out - especially the left chair! I sometimes wonder if a nice long lens looks like a rocket launcher to these guys...
