I'm back after a week off. I got a little sidetracked there for a few days. It's been raining non-stop here and it almost flooded again. So I've had no nature pictures to post. So after a week I finally got out and got some new pictures to share with you. Let's see what I got.

Okay, look at the center of this top picture. Does that look like a fish there on the end of that log to you? It did to me. So I took a few pictures to get a closer look and to see what I had there. But what was this thing really?

I think it still looks kind of like a fish, but it's really just part of another log sticking up out of the water. This is the kind of strange and goofy thing that I like posting about. It seems like a normal stupid mistake look-a-like of a fish, and that's what makes it fun. This is exactly the kind of thing that makes an everyday adventure.

And this last picture shows you the view I had of this fake fish when I took the picture. Look towards the middle left of the picture. You can see a small red circle if you really squint your eyes. That's where I saw this fishy. Now you know why I didn't know what it was when I saw it.

This gives you an idea of what can happen with nature watching. Sometimes you think you have a fish, but then you only have a piece of wood. That kind of thing happens a lot to me. I'll talk to you later.


  1. I think it's an alien. We should call the FBI. Really.

  2. It does look like a fish, but why would it act that way? A good one, Ratty.

  3. I'm glad you figured out it wasn't a fish!

  4. I know how this happens!! When we lived on the Lake here in Oregon I twice saw logs that looked so exactly like alligators that they made me jump. (Of course there are none here and probably I'd been walking along without realizing I was thinking of our Florida home instead of where I really was.) Still ... as you say ... that's all part of the adventure!

  5. I am glad you could continue your adventures again, Ratty. It looks like a fish to me too.

  6. A rare find of a fish sunning itself. 😃

  7. I like Ann's reply. Hahaha! fooled me too. Looked like a fish, alright. Did you have to walk all the way over there to figure this out?

    1. I couldn't get over there. I had to find out by looking at the picture. I'm glad I have a good zoom.

  8. That most certainly did look like a fish flopping onto that log!

  9. Sometimes you are Alice, but sometimes you are just a guy strives for a living.

    That's fishy.
