In Florida I paddled through deep flooded mangroves and saw lots of wildlife (see here). It was warm enough to enjoy the shade and paddle under the tree branches. I went under one low branch and emerged with a hornet sticking out of my leg. It was SUPER painful , and within 5 min there was a golf ball on my thigh. IT hurt for a while, changed colours, got itchy, and is still not all gone. Gross!
