There have been a few changes at one of my favourite ponds. First, a floating platform was added.

The turtles love to sunbathe on this thing. We assumed, at the time, that that was pretty much its purpose. Then, a few weeks later, this contraption showed up.

Any idea what it is? Does it have anything at all to do with the platform? Whatever it is is obviously solar-powered. The skinny rod in the center - can you see it? - rotates. The pond is in a city park. I suppose I could call city hall and ask. Novel concept, huh?

The rotating filaments must be to keep birds off the solar panels. If there is no areation or fountain nearby, I'm not sure what the panels are powering.
Hmmmmm ...

FC, there's no fountain and no aeration, as far as I can tell. Is a puzzlement, fur shur. Reckon I'll be calling city hall next Tuesday.

Wow, that thing looks like something out of a SciFi movie. Strange.

HT, it is pretty weird-looking, isn't it? I called city hall the other day, but the man with the answers was out. I'll try again sometime this week.
