Duck/dusk

If you look closely, you can see a glint of orange near the bottom center of the picture. There were some really impressive carp in this pond, near the Seattle Asian Art Museum in Volunteer Park. They seemed to get along fine with the mallards, who are vegetarians as far as I know (and who are about the same size as the fish, if not smaller!).

Pond visitor - white cat

Who needs garden art/sculptures when we have a defunct mini-pond that attracts neighborhood cats to sip from its dank, probably mosquito-egg-filled depths? This is one of two brother kitties from across the street. They have no fear of cars, crows, or, obviously, me.
