A favorite nap spot, but (almost) right in the way.
A few feet from here is a great spot to photograph a Great Blue Heron nest. There is enough room between trees if one flies by an in flight photo is also an option.
If you don’t get there first just walk by and take a spot a little further down. If you are first chances are one or more will swim up close, and go by checking to see if you have left yet. Pretty funny since they will make a circle, and stop by again.
This smaller one has the answer. He grabs the branch hanging into the water, you can have the land at the other end. Everybody’s happy.
