I had disturbed a great blue heron and it had flown along the river - I was hoping to get a better view of it and was moving cautiously and not only did I see the heron but also this troop of Coati!!! They either ignored me or did not know I was there was at least several minutes - wishing I had more than my little point and shoot along, I think I could have gotten some great shots!
