I like your koi....its hard to see how big they are with nothing to compare them with though.

Beautiful! Something about their colours makes them look enamelled to me.

Fish are very soothing, arent' they? My 2 year old grandson found a pond of koi at the Alamo when we visited them in December, and couldn't be dragged away! In fact, the screaming started and the huge tears - he is a bit of a drama king, inherited from his mother. He just wanted to stand and look at them the entire time. Beautiful and peaceful. I love the effect.

I'm coming right down here to the fishies...bugs and insects give me the heebie-jeebies. :)

So tranquil and I just feel my total happiness here.
No worries, in fact like miracles happened!
