How to Camouflage Sat. Antenna?

The only clear view I have in my heavily wooded lot is on lot line. I would like to minimize the impact of the antenna on my neighbor. Any ideas on how to best camouflage an antenna? Is paint the only option? If so what paint? Would netting work?

How wooded is your neighbor's lot? Is it something that the dish will really be seen anyway?
I've also wondered about paint just to make the dish look nicer, but I would guess that most types of paint would just diminish the signal.

I just pasted a couple of 2" circles that I cut from some paper address labels and put them over the top of the lnb entry cover.
Attached is a photo of my dish.

The mast is plumb. Photos often distort everything due to camera lens curvature.

The best stuff to paint the dish with is a plastic paint like Krylon "Fusion" brand paint, which can be had at less than $4 a spray can. Mine is painted white to closely match the siding on my house. I used the satin finish. It is also availble ib forest green and various camouflage colors=.
Nice install. Shoot, the bloody electric meter is uglier than the dish!
