I’m the only one who hunts this pond. Everyone else gets a bit creeped out by it staring back at them with hundreds of eyes. Fritz, my black lab, is the only one that’ll join me in my blind. He doesn’t seem to mind the weird seedpods of American lotus (Nelumbo lutea) swaying in the cool wind, each filled with a dozen unblinking, eye-like nuts. He smells the scent of ducks on that wind and is vibrating in anticipation. The cold water beneath the gray sky is paradise for him, especially when he’s swimming back to shore through those lotus pods with a duck in his gentle mouth.
