Do kids practice "catch and release" these days, or do they take them home and put them in a bowl of water?

RuneE said...

Those reflections AND the composition - hats off!

Dagrun said...

How wonderful image! Beautiful colours, and it certainly looks like they're having fun.

Great shots, EG.

We have had a w/e of accidents: 1 drowning Friday, 3 Sunday, and a float plane went down with two victims.

So nice to see some happy shots!

I love the brilliant colors of this photo. Great page of work. That falling apart wall looks like more nails than wood.

Small City Scenes said...

What a neat shot. You sure captured the liveliness of the event. Great reflection too. MB

PS. About the Koi--I do have heron coming here (and I run screaming at them and off they go) I think they get the frogs that abound by the pond and maybe some smaller fish. I read about Heron choking to death on fish too big. So maybe they wised up. I also have seen raccoon tracks in the mud by the water. Probably other things I do not see. It is interesting. MB
