“What Is That Thing?!”

This morning in the swamp I saw these two moorhens come strolling along on the edge of the water looking to pick at their usual breakfast of aquatic plants which they seem to find quite appealing. They quickly noticed however a large, somewhat unusual item floating there in the water. The moorhens paced about nervously for a few moments attempting to ascertain what this odd thing might be. But they must have concluded that it was nothing to be overly concerned about because they just as quickly went right back to their usual foraging.

Our pal Mr. Alligator was completely uninterested and ignored the moorhens the entire time. He obviously had more important things on his mind which no doubt included finding a comfy spot in the sun for his daily nap!
