In the scene where the Predator kills Blaine and Mac runs to his body he sees the Predator in stealth camouflage. The Predator's eye flash illumines green, before he vanishes into the jungle.

What is the flash about? A warning sign at Mac?

I always imagined it was toying with him...taunting his prey, knowing it would unbalance him.

hmm...never really thought about it.  The sound it makes is similar to the sound when adjusting range of vision (zooming in and out).  Also, aren't his eyes glowing right before he shoots Dillon's arm off?

I've always thought of it as a taunt.

AvP2, I think. There's something similar in the game that happens when you're cloaked I think.

But I've thought it was the changing of vision modes for a long time. Don't see what else it could be.

Indeed, it seems like a "Yes HERE I am" kinda thing. Like letting the prey know before the kill.

I don't see why it would change vision modes when it's hunting only one species of prey.

Yeahh, but the games arent the movies and i dont see why the eyes should glow everytime he switches his vision mode, in avp and predator 2 the eyes didnt glow when he did that.

True, but when did we ever see the vision mode change? We only saw it change from a first person perspective.

Thats true, but i think it would be too loud if the predator changes his vision mode and everytime his eyes are glowing (with that sound).
Especially in predator 2 in the slaughterhouse, keyes team would have noticed that, i think the predator only does that when he wants to confuse his prey or give them a little chance to see something from him.
