Updated: Someone snapped my picture while NIP

I'm a little weirded out. I took my MIL to the post office today since there was a line, I stayed in the car and nursed my ds. I was completely covered the whole time.  It wasn't too long before I noticed some guy in a car acrosse from me holding up his phone like he was taking my picture. When he saw me look at him he got flustered and started texting or something. I kinda ignored it and would look occasionally and he was glancing nervously at me.  When I got out to put ds back in his carseat, he left.  I was getting ready to drive away and said to MIL that I thought that guy took a picture of me.  I honestly expected her to not have noticed or something but she agreed and thought it was strange the way he left. 


Is there any reason someone would be snapping pictures of a covered woman NIP?  He couldn't possibly have seem anything. 


Thanks to everyone! I have no intentions of quitting nursing my LO.  I just might squeeze in the backseat next time, lol.  I am not totally comfortable NIP and this makes it more uncomfortable but hopefully I'll get past that.  I really just don't understand why he would do it. But I really hope that its the good reasons some of you mentioned.

Wow, creeper.

Maybe he thought you were going to just drive away holding the baby or something?

Creep. I'd think the same if you weren't nursing a baby.

I possibly would have taken my phone out and taken pictures of him.

Ok that is creepy but I do like to believe the best of people so my theories are1-his wife or sister or whatever is petrified of nip and he wanted to show her its no big deal 2-he was concerned when he saw a baby out of tje seat in a vehicle 3- he was actually lookimg at something on the car or behind and realized you would think he looked like a creeper.
