This fellow had been giving me the slip for weeks at the Patterson Park Boat Lake.  Imagine my surprise when I peered over the small stone wall one morning and found him just a couple of feet away.  Now if only I can find that Least Bittern that’s been rumored to be lurking around. . .

Me v Stupid & Obnoxious – I Cannot Make This Sh%#*^ Up!
