I can't imagine someone dropped him off here this place is a bit out of the way - some one would have passed about 3 other ponds to choose from.
Here is another picture that I shot this morning. I was able to sneak a little further down the hill before it spotted me and jumped in the water. Still not a great shot but you can at least see the bill and some of the coloring.
