sounds like it's time to buy, and practice using, a wrist rocket.

> Doug Parrot and I were walking out on the Edmond’s pier a few days ago,
> having a nice chat and looking for birds.
> When we reached the South end, we heard a sound, looked up and saw a drone
> flying about 15 feet above us. It went past the end of the pier, dropped
> and turned to face us-
> 20-25 feet in front of us and and about 5 feet higher than our heads.
> I felt-well I am not sure what-it was a novel experience-but I did not
> like it-at all!!
> I strongly waved for it- by owner- to leave. It didn’t.
> I could not locate the owner, but he was no where nearby.
> Really obnoxious, I believe illegal and dangerous.
> Have any of you had this experience?
> I like dogs, but not unleashed, in a posted area. At least I can talk to
> the owner.
> Unleashed Drones, remotely piloted by someone who is not visible,
> physically intrusive and potentially dangerous are a ten fold greater
> annoyance. I really hope this is not new trend.
> But, I drone on.....
> Thank you,
