I walked by, he sat and watched me.
My lens was really too big for this close but I didn’t think it was a good idea to swap out while sharing the space with him.
The bird was sitting on a cross beam of a wooden trunk apparently quite comfortable. Any other time I would never get this close, it would be invading his space. I’m pretty sure he invaded my space!
I did get the ‘keep walking along’ look from him though.
Checking around for any fish was the primary focus.
This was the first time being close enough to see the unique pattern around the eyes. Really pretty.
