    Urban wildlife. Had a visitor yesterday.

    So I live in San Francisco, in a very urban setting. I have a small, postage stamp yard where I have an outdoor pond with some cps growing by it. Here's the view looking out from my deck. The pond is in the lower right - the blue watering can is sitting on the edge:



    I walked out a bit further to look at the pond:


    Something seemed wrong, though. Couldn't put my finger on it, till I stepped back. I jumped a bit when I found who was visiting, about to make lunch out of the goldfish in my pond. Check it out, it's a great blue heron!!


    What are you doing in the middle of the city, giant bird!!! I chased it away.

    It's hard to pick up in the picture, but these birds are just ridiculously big. You can kind of tell from the first two pictures, but in real life, it's a lot closer than it seems. This is what he was after:

    We get Great blues all over here in da LBC. Down in Laguna, they are know to nest in pine trees and leave dents in the hoods of cars from the massive crap they unload.

    Yeah we have those in our backyard all the time in Virginia. Between those and the raccoons a pond is near about impossible.

    Those bonsai are very nice as well!! What is the one on the left? I'm definitely a fan.

    Nice!
