Koi Pond in the Summer

Since I have received a few compliments on my koi pond I thought I would post some more pictures from this past summer. Unfortunately my pond is bedded down for the winter now, and any more pictures won't be as glorious.

Background on the pond: It has been running for about 5 years, and we estimate the gallonage to be between 3000 and 4000 us gallons. It currently houses 5 beautiful koi ranging in ages from 5 to 3 years old. There are also some eastern mosquitofish that I put in there a few years ago to help eat any extra food that escapes the koi. I have also found larval salamanders and caddisflies in the water. Without any further ado, here is the pond:

Thanks! It's not spring feed, but I designed it to look as such. The second picture with all the plants is actually the bog. It runs on a snorkel/ bog recirculating system. It makes a lot more noise than most people think. When I am sitting on the bank with my feet in the water I can't hear anyone unless they are right next to me. It's actually really nice.
