    Had a visitor yesterday

    Did a double take walking by my sliding glass doors and looking out to the pool.

    Looks to be a snow goose, i have had the pool up for 6 summers now and we have mallards, swans, geese and wood ducks and never had a visitor in the pool.

    A little prodding with the pool net and he fly away.

    That would be nice to look at!

    So far this year our visitors have been limited to a couple of turtles. Last year we had nightly frogs visiting for a swim, but it doesn't appear they have found the pool this year yet.

    Yep..........looked like World War 3 in my pool except there were no ground troops, just all big submarines floating and diving to the bottom.

    If my wife saw that in our pool, I am pretty sure my FC would be about 350 by the time I got home from work.
