Great colours and an excellent shot.

Great focus and clearity shooting through the water! I wonder if the Koi feels trapped,
is reality in the perspective of the observer or the observed? :-) Racine

LOL@ the comments!! Beautiful shot Walter - I like the soft light reflecting off the ripples, very nicely done

Most likely that Trapped is a good situation for him in this case! V

Trapped but happy I think :))

So sharp! Trapped but, fortunately, not to eat!
Dave Hein14-Apr-2010 08:07
Growing up for me they were nothing but common carp. But when they look like this they can be worth tens of thousands of dollars apiece! A special diet develops these colors.

The reflections are magical. He thinks you are trapped ;-)

What a beautiful koi fish! I guess he won't be going too far since he's "trapped"!
Mairéad13-Apr-2010 21:43
Great capture of this colourful fish. Now why didn't I think of that - I have a whole tankful of fish? V
LeeG13-Apr-2010 21:41
Looks like he has a sad expression, he knows he is trapped. Beautiful shot of this colorful Koi!
