Cherry petals like snow

Cherry petals like snow

The park pond surface turns pink

Matching the fat carp

    Fat carp. Loved that!

    • AshiAkira says:

      Pet carp in a fishpond are well fed and they get plump and buoyant. They become too fat to dive down to the bottom of the pond to get food for themselves anymore. But not to worry. The keeper scatter light food that floats on the surface of the pond. Now the colorful carp slowly swim around near the surface to get the food dancing with the floating cherry petals.
