That guy in the second image looks a little dangerous with that long barb he has!
Great shots.

Wonderful Koi photos. You've captured some really beautiful fish.

The kois really grow so big for an ornamental fish, I thought. I love them a lot, though.

In response to your question about the river's color from my post, yes that's the true color of water, but it changes in color from that to a muddy one to a toothpaste color along its course.

The fish are very colorful. Nice clear water for them to swim in. Great photos as always.

I love koi, I know people keep them here in Canada, not sure how they over winter them though. Great shots.

Wonderful photos here. I wish so much for a little rain to come our way.....................I know your photos have nothing to do with rainfall, just made me think about it that's all, LOL.

Koi! That's one thing I didn't get a picture of at Shaw's Garden - I got about everything else, but not the Koi! Well, I'll be going back soon, so I'll get it then! LoL! Great shots - they're so colorful!!!

Wonderful captures for Watery Wednesday!

Connie said...

Your pictures of the Koi are really nice and colorful.

Bryan said...

Those koi are not coy.

SAPhotographs (Joan) said...

These coy are always wonderful to have in a ond in the garden. They get so tame eventually that they will come up and allow you to touch them. :)

Greyscale Territory said...

These fish are such glorious, almost luminous colours! Great shots!

Dylan said...

The leaves in the water are lovely, with the tones and light.

Beautiful...I tried to get shots of the koi in the pond at the Japanese Garden I visited, but the water was a bit murky. Your shots are so clear. Terrific...

Amanda Guthrie said...

Great Koi shots have you been to the Japanese garden in the Huntington? I bet you have! Have a great day 2Sweet! By the way this is a new site for me if you don't recognize it.
