Remember these critters? The goldfish in my pond? They were there on Sunday. I saw them from the deck when we had a campfire and made s'mores.
Here they are earlier this spring on a rainy day.
And here more recently as fuzzy gold shapes in the water.
As of Tuesday, they were gone.
No goldfish to be seen.
I think the heron I saw last week that landed in my backyard momentarily until I startled it, returned and had its fill.
I wonder what the absence of the goldfish will do to our lack of mosquitoes? On the other hand I won't need to run the hose to fill up the pond when we have had no rain for an extended time. I wonder how long it will be before the heron returns for the frogs?
