This afternoon I took a walk to get some exercise. (Don't want the occasional Twistee Strawberry Sundae to ruin my regimen.) I am just up the street from a large housing area called Timber Oaks. I drive through it quite frequently to get to other places, but this was my first walk. I was very surprised that very near to an intersection I use often is a Nature Area that includes this little lake. The reason I missed it from the car is that it from the car is that it sits in a large depression in the landscape. I walked around it in a few minutes. It is shaped like a doughnut, round with an island in the middle. There were a few Muscovy Ducks which were no big surprise. The really big fish I saw was a bit of a surprise. I think it might have been a catfish, but I'm not sure. There were also some smaller fish of a different kind and some tiny minnow sized ones as well.
Then when I got back home I looked over the railing on the landing of the stairs an saw this fellow (or gal?) strolling across the yard munching on plants as it went.
