After visiting with Romeo & Juliette,I spied this Blue Heron over on a rock close by.The problem was that it was dark in behind! I needed to line the Heron up with that great sunset.So I beached my boat (Romeo & Juliette were in a small tree very close to me & looked down wondering what the hell I was doing?)
I walked away from them both & the Heron.I didn’t want to spook the Heron. I did a large loop around & in behind the Heron. I then started to approach.If you stare at a animal while walking towards them,they’ll get nervous.So try to approach while looking else where & going left & right.Never make a bee line to them. I was able to get close enough to see dozens of bugs circling.Not sure what they were but I did end up getting bit as well.
