Mama’s Fish House

Water Lily and Company


Right place, right timeI was fortunate to get this shot, and so excited to see it on my camera.  This particular koi is photogenic, even if she doesn’t know it.  She always seems to be right there when I have my camera ready.  Yesterday I captured the three lilies that opened in our pond, and she loyally followed me alongside the edge with her head popping right out of the water to see what I found so interesting.  How do I know she’s a she?  In springtime, her belly becomes rounded with eggs.  She’s also the proud mama to half the koi who swim beside her.
