A woman determined to capture her sister’s engagement had to dress like shrubbery to keep her presence a secret.

Therese Merkel shared her covert operation on Twitter. She wanted to get as close as possible to her sister, Rachel, when her future brother-in-law proposed.

To do so, she needed to blend in with the trees and plants around the spot Rachel’s now fiancé, Andrew, chose to pop the question.

Merkel wrote,

“Sister got engaged this weekend and I dressed as a bush in the wilderness to watch/capture the moment. We are 1 yr apart…why are our lives so different rofl.”

The shifty shutterbug shared her pic of the magical moment when Andrew asked Rachel to marry him. She also added two photos of herself in her bushy costume.

Her post was liked over 180,000 times. People loved her sweet stealth and her creeping her sister’s engagement. Others committed to doing the same.

Merkel is the best kind of sister to have—great fun and super thoughtful. A bush-wearing sister must be a good omen.

As the old saying goes, a ring on the hand is worth a sister as a bush.
