Eew! I hate watching koi feeding — they actually look scary and violent then. So different from when they're just lazily swimming around.

Very colorful pictures
Thank God they are not carnivores!!
I like the little bit of Portugal Monarchy's history on your last post.

My goodness, they do look hungry!!!

what an unusual picture. I love the colors. Koi remind me of my mother's pond in her backyard.

i always enjoy looking at fish feeding time like this ... It's a joyful sight! Thanks for sharing this, JM. This somewhat inspires me.

Sherry said...

Great photos! It's remarkable to me that the beautiful building in your previous photos houses an aquarium. It looks more like a state building!

Aren't kois lovely? In China, sadly, they get eaten. I was told that one of the favourite recipes is steaming them with cabbage leaves on top that makes it sweet and juicy.

Thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comments. Have a great Monday!

That's a mad image. They do suddenly look as Hilda say quite violent.

Hilda is right, it doesn't exactly look calm and peaceful. A sparkling collection of colours for an autumn day.

Kate said...

You captured the movement and energy so very well. Great colours, too.
