A Walk around the Neighborhood…Updated at the end!!!

When I walk around the neighborhood, I don’t usually carry my camera. But on one hot and humid evening, I took it and just walked to the little pond near our house.

Evening light is not the best for getting good focus.

But it does look beautiful at this time of day.

And you know me…I have a vivid imagination.

So don’t you imagine these ducks are saying,

Should we turn our back on that water creature?

Do you think it’s a sea monster?

Well, whatever…

let’s get the ‘hey’ out of here!

hahaha!

I had a lot of questions about WHAT that ‘thing’ was in the water! But I had one very observant blog buddy that recognized it right away!

“I have a vivid imagination too, and I'm wondering how you got that pile of grassy wet weeds to stay on top of your head when you crept into the water?! Wendy ;)”

HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

(we’re just kidding for anyone else that wonders! I think it’s an old rotten log with grass on top but then again…use your imagination!!!)

I’m joining Saturday’s critters HERE

and I’d Rather B Birdin’.

Hello Diane, cute captions. Those ducks should be weary of the suspicious looking sea monster. Cute duckies! Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Happy Saturday, enjoy your weekend!

Diane, What was that hairy thing? Was it a beaver or otter? looked to big to be a muskrat. I like the ducks. I am sure you get to see many birds near the pond. Hope your weekend is a fun one. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

I'm wondering now, what is that in the water?? You always get the most interesting pics, my friend. The pond near your house looks so pretty at night. So glad you had your camera handy. :)

Have a peaceful weekend.

This is a great spot to stop, take pictures and enjoy nature. Well, not that unidentified creature if it is as scary as it looks!

It does look a bit like an alligator's head. Do you have a lot of them where you live?

I have a vivid imagination too, and I'm wondering how you got that pile of grassy wet weeds to stay on top of your head when you crept into the water?!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I like your commenters explanation better than yours ....LOL .... You should always take your camera, you always find such fun things. (But keep it out of the water ;)))

Wonderful building. I am glad that it has found new life in being an assisted living home.

Eu achei tão linda as suas fotos. Mesmo sendo a noite suas foto ficaram excelente. Difícil identificar que coisa está na água. Os patos, ou (gansos) estão tranquilo, não deve ser nada perigoso.
Gostei muito de passar aqui.

Deixo um abraço!
