    by a creek, I came upon a doe as she calmly kept eating grass about 12' away.
      I stayed on the trail, we read each others blank calm thoughts .
    I walked on.

    If I had moved off the trail 1/2" she would have been alarmed...another trail function, defining intent.

    I was playing peek a boo with a Pine Marten in Yosemite once, we stared at each other for 20 minutes...when I shifted my foot....slooooowly off the trail he freaked and ran for cover.
       When I walked away 40', I stopped and turned and he had followed me and was peeking around a tree.  I turned slowly and watched him and took pictures..and after another 20 minutes shifted my toe off trail, away he went to his log hide out home.
