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.
