In the yard today

It appears as though winter has finally arrived. It is COLD out here! I have been enjoying staying warm near the fireplace. A few minutes ago however I had a visitor in the yard.

 As a rule of thumb. I think these guys are really cute, but I don't want to get too close. For the last 14 years, I have had a pond filled with fishes . Lately, they seem to have disappeared. Hum! Do you think this little guy has anything to do with it??
