colorful Koi – part 3

These are big Koi.  They spend their day getting fed by the people strolling through the Selby Botanical Gardens.  When they spot someone approaching the side of the pool they swim over as a group and give that open mouth “feed me” look.

I have so many photos taken at the Selby Orchid exhibit that I have to post more than usual, so here is a Sunday photo.  Imagine the temp is at about 75, a sunny day, a small waterfall is making soft splashing noises, and you are sitting in the old wooden bench right next to the pool, being shaded by some broad tropical leaves above you.  A lot of colorful fish are giving you their undivided attention, hoping you will throw a morsel of food their way.  Relax.
