Flash Icon blinking in viewfinder
I was on a European vacation with my D7000. On a number of occasions in bright daylight, the flash icon was blinking in the viewfinder. I looked it up in either my Nikon manual or Thom Hogan's book (I forget which) and it says that when that icon blinks, it means you need your flash.
I have to tell you that at the time I was shooting aperture priority, and the camera was selecting, in at least one case, a shutter speed of 1/640. There was no need for flash and when I took the pictures, they came out fine.
Part of me says "don't worry about it", and part of me is concerned. Has anyone else experienced this?
I imagine someone will ask me to post the image and the EXIF, but I can't. I took about 2300 images on this trip and I didn't really keep track of when it came up; but, I can tell you the situation came up many times. In each case, the light was good, with aperture priority the shutter speed selected by the camera was over 1/125, and the picture came out fine, despite the absence of a flash.

I hate when people ask me what I see myself doing in 5 years...... I don't have 2020 vision!
