Spring is quickly approaching and you know what that means. Flowers will be blooming, trees will be sprouting new leaves, and wildlife will be much more active. Remember to give all the animals plenty of space as they start moving around more. When viewing wildlife, a good rule for a safe distance is the "rule of thumb". Hold your arm out straight and stick up your thumb. Then close one eye and see if you can cover up the animal with the tip of your thumb. If you can completely cover up the animal then you are a "good" or "safe" distance away.
Another good guideline to go by is, if the animal changes it's behavior in any way then you are probably too close.
