one day by the pond

every spring its a big deal to clean the old leaves out of the pond so the fish have a clean habitat.
these are all pics taken as the sun is shining on the surface

the next 2 are youngest daughter pooch sweet pea's reflection
i was standing across the pond from her

ones name is sushi, one is stick, one is biggie smalls, one is tyrone, one is pauly shore, one is pinner, one is sunjeet, and the rest usually just get called pauly shore

this is a close up shot of the side of a stump beside the pond.

i think the fish are really happy :) 

all for now

  1. Whoa! Strange doings going on in your backyard. Isn't it fun to shoot reflections? I was just out on my balcony catching a shot or two of our pond with the weeping willow. The water was as smooth as a mirror and the birds were chirping...quiet spring...

  2. Sushi sounds like a nice name for a fish. Is there a resemblance to the food? Or were you just hungry when you named it? Nice pond, by the way. xx

  3. Hi Laura

  11. Dear Laura,
    Really good photographs. I love the reflections. I don't think that I should take any photographs of our pond. I think that there are more leaves than water !!!!
    Oh, and I love the names you have given the fish.
    Have a great week. XXXX
