Trik sorry but I have no knowledge of these things.
I hadn't seen the little insects flying about even.

[QUOTE=Trik;18784615]
Thanks. Ha ha ha, good one. :-) Actually I was kneeling on the shore and the bird was in the distance, giving the eye level perspective. But I may have to try snorkeling next.
