WEEKEND REFLECTION--Don't be 'koi'.

The word 'coy' is defined as 'tending to avoid people or social situations; reserved,' but these Japanese koi fish are anything but reserved. They, along with a number of their friends, were rushing the little wooden bridge I passed over at Seattle's Japanese Garden, hoping I'd purchased some fish food at the ticket booth.  Sorry to say I hadn't, but will next time....

Good one, Bibi! In the Japanese Garden I go to, they don't allow you to feed the fish at all, but for some reason they all look like this anyway!

They are greedy little things, aren't they! Great shot, capturing the action with a single click... Don't worry about the koi as they are probably fat from being fed by people crossing their bridge!

This is a superb photograph. I've taken pics of koi before but haven't even come close to this quality! Fantastic!
