Since buying the property I have been seeing large floaters in the water. Some are over two feet long! I had been told that they were snapping turtles, but I could never see them. Trying to get closer only caused the shadowy shapes to dive down deeper.
Do you see those scary dark spots in the water? Do you think they are snapping turtles?
Sunday afternoon I tried a different tactic. I walked very slowly, and cautiously to the pond. I stopped and waited several times for the shadows to resurface and then put my tripod up in the shade. Being in the shade masked me, but the awesome part was when the slanty light finally revealed the mystery.
I went hunting,
What did I see?
I saw a big Catfish
Looking at me!
So happy there are no snapping turtles to bite the feet of my geese!
