Camera Critters: One Fish, Two Fish

Goldie and Spot


The cold temps and snow and ice have been gone for a little over a week now and look who surfaced in the pond. This little pair came up from the bottom but they don't look like they're quite ready to stick their heads out yet. Or perhaps they're asking 'does this rock make our butts look big.' As I walked by yesterday I didn't see but heard a little frog plop into the water so the pond is indeed coming out of its long winter slumber. These sights and sounds are a wonderful prelude for what's to come and I can hardly wait!

The composition of this photo is wonderful, Carletta! I keep promising myself I'm going to have a pond but never can seem to find the time to get it started. Maybe this summer?

Thom said...

This is so pretty. I really like Koi. At Ala Moana Center they have tons of them in the pools all over the mall. Just wonderful to look at. :)

You can tell those little fish I don't think their butts look big ;) This is a lovely photo, have a great week Carletta.

Sorry I have been so scarce. I enjoyed scrolling down and catching up a bit. Can't believe you have had temps in the 70s. I'm jealous. We have warmed up considerably here, though, so I can't complain. Snow out front is almost all melted. We had awful winds yesterday that I thought would blow my house down, but it's still standing.

I'm always awed by the strength and resilience of nature. Things you (well I) don't really think about - like how fish survive under the ice in winter.... nice photo... as were all the outhouses, cattails and giant cacti below.... not to mention those adorable granddaughters.

Kerri said...

Yippeee... Spring is on it's way!

Like Raven I also wonder how such creatures survive in the freezing winter. Oh, the wonders of nature! Thanks for sharing your lovely picture.
