These guys aren't as used to seeing people as others are. I'm really the only person they see on a regular basis. My backyard is rather isolated. They're a little bit closer to wild carp than to domestic koi in that regard. They have to be wary of big things because they might (and have been in the past) predators.

I've been meaning to post this for a few days, but stuff just keeps getting in the way. Here are some shots of the koi eating one of their first meals of the year. Cheerios! I use them as a substitute until their real food comes in (which should be early next week).









I would love to get a light polarizer for my camera. While some reflection is nice, too much just ruins the shot.

I'm looking for good pictures of my koi to give you the background, breed, and names for them.

Love the shots! polarizers are very nice to have. I never did get around to replacing mine when I switched cams, miss it. . . looking forward to the details on these amazing animals. I just adore your pond. So happy you started this thread, it's going to be so lovely to follow it through the course of the season. And? Cheerios are DELISH! I can see they agree!

*burbles with jealousy* Oh, Izzy, it looks fantastic! So natural, like it's always been a part of the land. Did you do the designing of it? And of course I love the cherry trees. :) (for those who don't know, my name Sakura means cherry blossoms in Japanese).

Your koi are so gorgeous and BIG! I love your tancho. Something about that big tomato spot on their heads that makes me go "Awwwwww."

Awwww thanks!! :3 I did design the pond myself. I want it to look as natural as possible. The idea I had in mind was a mountain-side spring. I'm a couple hours away from the mountains, and I love hiking and finding these tiny little springs. So I brought one to my backyard!

I love my little tancho's spot, too! It's even more special because it's lopsided! It's like someone missed the target when throwing the tomato!!

My shots of the fish come out best when there is full sun. Unfortunately we've had cloudy skies now for a couple of days. Tomorrow isn't looking better either. I have some good shots, but not of all. Honestly it's really hard to photograph just ONE at a time. Photobombing is kinda their thing... must be genetic... goldfish do it, too...
