Simon creeps down to the overturned rowboat and stops to listen. Nothing. He finds a heavy stick to jack up the rim and shoves a rock underneath.

Suddenly a faint HISSING comes from underneath the boat. Simon hesitates for a moment then crouches down and shines a penlight through the crack.

Flashes of light trace over a hideous black beetle crawling around in a rotting duck carcass. One of Billy's shiny darts juts out from the duck's broken head.

Simon reaches in with the stick and pries the beetle away from its meal. He scoops it into a plastic box and snaps the lid shut.
