Hotels advertise all sorts of specials to attract business. We were looking for one that allowed pets, and found more than we bargained for. What wasn't advertised was the 'extra' special (not sure if this was advertised it would attract or repel business). I found this in a ditch right behind the hotel. I'm sure it was watching me as I angled closer and I managed to get a couple of shots before it suddenly turned and thrashed in a frenzy of water to get away.
