We have a gold fish pond/fountain in our oasis. It has had two residents over the past 16 years. The first was Wyatt who died after 8 years. We immediately put two new goldfish in the pond. After a couple of years one (Virgil) "disappeared -- without a trace." We never knew what happened to him.
Yesterday, our remaining goldfish (Morgan) who we've had for over 8 years, was taken from us.
One of our guests was sitting outside when this happened. He had his camera with him at the time. Here is what he saw:
|On the far wall|
|On the near wall|
|On the patio deck near the hummingbird feeder|
|Above the fountain|
|Checking everything out above the fountain|
|Eyeing it's prey from above the fountain|
And then in a flash, speared Morgan, and took off.

P.S. Thanks to Gene for sharing and solving the mystery for us.
Gotta go now and get some new goldfish.
