gone

are the goldfish
the perpetrator 
 it is a tiny pond obscured by bushes
 and home to goldfish that start out about 2-inches in the spring and grow to 5-6-inches by the time we close up the pond before winter
 we won't be needing to transport the goldfish to a lake this year
thanks to this fellow
a rather sad ending

We had the very same thing happen a couple of years ago, it is a bit disheartening. Perhaps you can try again in the spring

I would be so upset, too, Lorraine. Poor little fish. Is that a crane? Oh well. I am sure there must be a a spot for little fish by Rainbow's Bridge. xo

Poor little fishies. We had a case of the missing fish in our little pond one year. I think it was either racoons or kitty cats. :*(

Oh how sad...my dad used to have a little pond and had the same dilemmas.

Donna said...

Oh no! The heron is sure beautiful, but that is a sad end to the poor goldfish!

Perpetrator, LOL...

Beth said...

Oh dear. That is a sad end!

Well the guy who had the fish dinner is looking quite pleased. Poor fish.

Such a beautiful perpetrator, such a sad ending. I showed my husband your post and he said "its the food chain." :(

This is sad. Not a good outcome for the goldfish.

Danice said...

Oh, poor little goldfish. Perhaps you can try again soon. Goldfish are so beautiful.

Susan said...

Well my gosh. Imagine that bird thinking your goldfish were meant for his delicious snack! I'm amazed at that. Maybe they are swimming under the rainbow bridge? Sorry about the goldies, Lorraine. Susan

OH my...I am laughing and I know it isn't funny...one year my son went fishing in my goldfish pond...they had become over 5 inches long and beautiful...well they didn't make it through his fishing adventure.

Just a little something from Judy said...

A sad story but a beautiful picture. I am sure you were surprised when you made the discovery.
