Nice shots! I need to take a few of mine soon. I have been so busy tending to them that I have not had time to photograph them.

ive only got a few showing color, but they are all in the outdoor pond now. minus the ones i gave away. it doesnt take but a sign at the Lowes pond supply area..free pond fish,koi and goldies, and a phone # to give away all of them. i have about 30 or 40 for me to choose from this fall and the rest can go.
