A Great Blue Heron allowed me to approach while it watched intently under the stump. I was hoping for a great catch shot but whatever it was watching apparently escaped without giving the bird the opportunity to strike.
The pair of Red-breasted Mergansers are still here and are becoming quite accustomed to my boat approaches. As acclimated as they have became they no longer take flight when pressed closely; choosing instead to swim away. The great light here gave me what may be my very best ever "on the water shot" of a RB Merganser.
