I understand. I would beat myself up over something like that, too. But don't!! We can't think of everything, all the time.
And you know, I have to agree with Muddypaws. You did the one thing that probably scares him more than anything and he had the opportunity to see that it was okay. Nothing bad happened to him. I don't think I'd approach it that way intentionally, but since it happened, you might as well look at the upside!
Incidentally, I lose all focus when there's a bee or a wasp near me, too. I've done my "bee dance" when out for a walk with the dogs. Gunner used to go on alert when I'd do that. Luckily, Riley just stands there looking at me like, "WTH is wrong with you?"
