A few days ago I noticed a pair of swans joined their group. And then a cormorant, which I found more surprising. I've seen swans visit the pond before, but never a cormorant.
While walking by Sunday evening, I had my biggest surprise: an alligator.
Yup. Rob wondered why I had suddenly stopped and was laughing and pointing at the pond. OMG, it's an alligator!
We returned the next day with a camera. I needed pictures. As Rob walked down to the edge of the pond to get good closeups, I noticed the swans were not reacting to his approach. At all. That's when I realized that none of the three animals were real. Evidently the swans were there to scare off the geese as well.
Very entertaining. I'm waiting to see what my neighbor comes up with next!
