If a camera's shutter is released by a timer in the forest and no one hears it, does it make a sound?

To be honest, I don't hear the camera's shutter that much...I mostly feel it. Others might notice it though...
I feel it too. But I like the solid chunk sound it makes. I'm proud of my K10D's shutter sound. I think a camera means serious business when you can hear the solid sound of the shutter firing away.

Don't be embarassed by the sound in a public setting. Be proud the Canikon users next to you are looking your way because they can hear your shutter!

Though if one closes in stealth-like on an animal to get a shot, the shutter release would happen quicker than the animal could react to the sound it makes.
Before the days of P-TTL, this was also true about flash and blinking - anyone who says the flash made them blink and that showed up in pictures was basically wrong. Now, I'm not so sure how the timing works...
