Surprise

I often go to James Gardens and sit and watch the ducks paddling about in their pond. A couple of weeks ago there were very few ducks in the water - they were all asleep on the grass - and when I looked down into the pond this is what I saw. The pond is only about 2 feet deep and the fish are probably at least a foot long! I have no idea what kind they are.

I was going to say catfish but TexWisGirl is right - they're carp.

A nice photo!

Nicely captured though the water does seem very shallow for such big fish!

William Kendall said...

Love the reflection from the water as well as the fish in your photo. I think those are carp, but I'm no expert.

Do people fish in this pond? Those look like they are big and healthy. I wonder where they came from.

They look like they're quite happy in there Pat.. big! You didn't have your fishing rod and net handy 😃😃

I thought catfish at first, too. But carp is probably the right answer. Looking for food, always.

Crystal clear view into the water. Usually in the month June the carp come into the shallow waters to breed.

At the expense of sounding like I'm c-a-r-p-i-n-g, I'd say they're--well, carp. :-)

They do look like carp, and a very close look-alike to Bull Head that we have, although they have a whiter bottom! Very cool capture whatever they are!
