Koi Trio

Several years ago I gave my sister some colorful koi to put in their pond. Her husband had just had it drained and rebuilt. We put the koi in before he stocked it with bass, bream and catfish. The koi had a chance to get large enough that the game fish couldn't eat them but would later eat the koi's offspring to keep the pond in balance. Boy, have they grown into huge torpedos! It is so much fun to throw out the the fish food and see their beautiful bodies rise to the surface.

So beautiful Pat! You really did capture the feel they are living jewels in water.
