Watery Wednesday #25

I'm sorry I've been a little neglect but I've been so busy. I love the memes I've been participating in but I realize I've been spending way too much time on the computer and I've been trying to catch up with my real life. :-D I will at the minimum keep up with my Watery Wednesday and do other posting when I can.

In the meantime, get out those galoshes and let's get cyber wet! If you want to see some water shots from all over the world make sure you click on the icon below and hopefully the little visual splashes will encourage you to dive in.

I call this one dirty water. It's not a pretty shot but it sure shows how bad this lake at the Descansco Gardens looked up close after one of the rains we had.

I like that you showed something dirty; not everything is clean and attractive you know.

Glad you started this meme. I feel the same way, I am doing way too many meme (I am enjoying it) which leave very little time for real life and living :)

Noticed the fish.So it can't be the water can't be that dirty.Neat shot!

ChrisC and JonJ said...

One should always proof read before they hit enter.Meant to say "The water can't be that dirty..."

Tess said...

How nice, the fish and the duck.

kayleen said...

That's one big fish! Like the contrast in size. Thanks for sharing.

Today's Blah... said...

Makes a beautiful photo though.

Same here, seems like my day isn't complete if I don't get to blog or blog hop. Huhuhuhu... though I've set thursday as my blogging off, still I have to set another day off for that, to get into real world.

Denise said...

Fasincating shot, I like it. I hope ducky's name isn't Jonah, that fish is huge ;)

Darla said...

That fish is a little bif for that little duck, huh? Good pic!!

kden said...

I agree, huge fish, little duck. I also am glad that you are doing this meme. It's one of my favorites and I also spend WAY too much time on the computer.

Will said...

Great shot of the fish and duck! Yes, the water does not look like the kind into which one would want to plunge.

VALKYRIEN said...

I do not care if the water is a little dirty - that is a great shot! But I don't think I would like to swim in that water.....

Tess said...

Thank you so much again for alerting me to the fact the my link was incorrectly copied. Hope you have a wonderful week ahead!

Carletta said...

Wow what a big fish! I'm with Chris and Jon in that it can't be all that dirty. That fish has enough oxygen to grow that big and look I see little ducky feet under there. :)

Welcome to the real world. But I like the big fish. It's huge.

The Right Blue said...

Hmmm - must be 'something going around' because, like you, I've had to cut way back on my blogging and photo meme participation -- so don't feel bad!!

I have to say, I feel a bit sorry for that fishy, but like Carletta said, he has managed to grow to a pretty big size, so I'm sure he'll survive3 until the gunk in the water settles out again.

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

Great that you were able to catch both of hese in one shot TB.

Lilly said...

wow, that's a great shot.

Kathy said...

Are those catfish swimming below that duck? Poor duck. Doesn't look like he minds the dirty water to much. =) Hope you have a great wednesday.

Pam said...

Live you life first! And everything else Second! Love your shot of the fish, its awesome. Thanks for hosting Watery Wednesday.

Mary said...

Great shot! Blogging does have a way of taking over our lives :-) I don't blame you for cutting back. Sometimes I think all I do is sit at the computer and I don't like that! I love everyone's blogs, but prefer living real life. Have to find a balance!

Sunshine said...

aw cute. good thing the duck did not eat the fish or the fish nipped on the leg of the duckling. :)

happy WW!

Linnea W said...

Even though the water may be dirty, it certainly adds wonderful color to your shot. I really like this. It looks like a watercolor painting. Hopefully the debris will filter out somehow and the water will become clear again...although more rain is on its way up here. Take care and hope you can catch up with your life!

would love to eat that buffalo fish (Carp)

Connie said...

That is a big fish. I wonder why he is so close to the duck. Cute picture.

chrome3d said...

The fish looks so funny under that dirt but it must not feel too good. Fish and bird existing together so peacefully is so surprising.

Tarolino said...

True. Quite dirty. But what an amazing opportunity for a unique shot. A fish and a bird side by side at the surface. Now this is what I call awesome. You saw these for a nano second and coldly pressed the trigger and got a sharp shot. Now how good is that?

Kilauea Poetry said...

Wow, what a cool shot! Love it!

simply divina said...

You have a refreshing music of your blog. So nice,you watery wednesday is very cute with the duck and fish.

George said...

Thanks for a very interesting Watery Wednesday photo. The duck and fish together is fascinating.
Good luck with your time away from the computer.

Jew Wishes said...

How beautiful and serene...

sunnymama said...

Fantastic photo!

Judy said...

It is an interesting shot, and shows that carp can become huge! I also like the pelican you posted on the Watery Wednesday site! I like the way his wings are in motion!
But I really came here to let you know that the next time you drop by my blog http://lilacgate.blogspot.com/ there is a surprise waiting for you!!

Nice picture, love the fish and duck together, I wonder if they knew they were so close. Thank you for commenting on my site.
