The water was thickly covered with duck weed and fallen leaves, and there is a thick tangle of other pond vegetation.

At first I thought it might be an Alligator and wondered about the Little Blue’s wisdom in checking it out as it thrashed a bit.

The Little Blue Heron didn’t provoke a reaction and kept on moving in his search for lunch.
