Yes, maybe we see natural selection in action, but not evolution itself.
Natural selection is a mechanism that drives evolution in a certain direction. If you can measure that natural selection has taken place, then you will by necessity be able to say that evolution has taken place. I.e. if you see natural selection, you see evolution (although the reverse is not necessarily true).
