We recently renovated the garden pond after we lost our 3 koi to the winter of 2009-10.
Actually, they just vanished.
They were last seen before the one inch thick ice formed over the pond, but no one remembers exactly when they saw them last, so their departure is a mystery.
Did the owl or some other beastie snatch them pre-ice or did they take advantage of dead fish after the ice thawed?
I don't know, but there are now 3 new koi babies in there and the owl has been hanging out on the pond bench, so ...
A green tree frog was perched on a palm frond near the pond.
Along the drippy, dark trail were several gopher burrows. I know where they are of course, so I would douse the light each time I approached a burrow and on this one it paid off. The gopher was just making his escape when I hit the lights and took the picture.
Bear has encountered this gopher, out of it's burrow and grazing, once or twice on our daytime walks.
I never seem to have my camera when that happens, but one of these days I will share the Bear-Gopher encounter with you.
It involves a lot of barking.
