Hey Joe- I think you're on the right track!!  Those are pretty amazing , exotic species-both kinds you found. Whatever it is, it's off course and due for departure ASAP. :wink:

:lol:  Good call Ron!!  It has apparently swum/flown/flumed away, so we'll never know for sure.

Here't the thing LOL....  Hate that comment, but when I first saw that, i thought Penguin.  Either way, a very real pleasure to view...  All the best.  D
Make your life spectacular!
