Kalamazoo at its best

For all of the dorm shabbiness,
the conference does see WMSU at its best.
There's quite a nice pond just below the dorm buildings,
and the trees are blossoming in early May,
and there are geese:

... and turtles sunning themselves...

... and a pair of nesting swans!

The orange construction netting fence is not very attractive,
but it is needed.
Swans do need to be protected from campus visitors,
but even more,
the campus visitors need to be protected from the SWANS.
Swans are very aggressive-- in fact, downright mean!

I especially love the turtle photo. What a lovely turtle!
