This observation comes to us from George Angadicheril in Arlington, Texas.

George has a small Koi pond in his backyard, and recently he noticed some of his fish had gone missing. Included in the missing was a very important fish named Spotty. Spotty was a gift to Mr. Angadicheril from his grandson, Mathew and his granddaughter, Emily.

Armed with a camera, George was determined to discover why his fish were disappearing. It didn’t take long for this Great Blue Heron to arrive on the scene. Mystery solved!

The fish thief is visible in this picture. Can you see him?
Zooming in reveals the culprit. A great Blue Heron!
