BUSTED

About an hour ago I was sitting in the parking lot of the St. Augustine Premium Outlet Mall, and, I took several pictures of a Little Blue Heron and a pair of Hooded Mergansers that were in the retention pond. One of their security guards came up and told me that no one was allowed to take pictures there. I'm not sure how the actual law reads on this, but I won't bother them any more, either with my shopping, or my photography.
I will make sure that every wildlife photographer I communicate with, a considerable number, is aware that while they can spend money at the St. Augustine Premium Outlet Mall, they dare not pull out a camera and point it at a bird!

I would certainly tell management at the mall the same thing. Also perhaps a letter to the landlords, and corperate headquarters.

I emailed corporate HQ, no reply yet.
I may be too sensitive, but at the rate restrictions are added to our lives these days the future looks pretty bleak. I could spend a lot of time listing things I once could do freely that are now forbidden, usually for no valid reason.
