Shallows Where A Lamb Could Wade

When I headed down to the river for these pictures I passed a man fishing at another outlet and he said "there are a lot of gnats out." To which I replied, "Yes, okay." Partly because talking to strangers makes me extremely uncomfortable so I couldn't think of anything else to say and partly because a few gnats were not going to come between me and wading into the sunset. For the record, it wasn't very buggy this evening but as summer approaches we will be getting far more mosquitoes and the river will become quite unpleasant at sunset. I'm almost always covered with bug bites in spring and summer, but I rather wear them as seasonal badges of honor--my evidence that despite remaining extremely pale I do get outside. I'm far more concerned about the water moccasins that also like this river or um, other people being around...
