Default Feeding Frenzy

Taken last year, at the Yu Gardens in Shanghai. I never saw so many Koi in one group and thought you might enjoy the shot. The fish are larger than they appear in the photo.

When someone came to the edge of the pond they thought it was feeding time and swarmed to get whatever food was dropped in.

Taken with K100D and Tamron 18-250

Great photo, Lou!
Is it coy or koi? I built a nice 600 gal pond in the yard a few years back. I stocked it with some young ones about 4 inches long. It didn't take long for them to grow to more than a foot long. Shortly after my divorce I got word that the great blue herons found them quite an easy dinner spot.

Thanks GW, I stand corrected and made the spelling change in the post. I thought the way I spelled it looked a little fishy (pun intended).

Don't be so Coy! Well their not coy; (definition is flirtatiously shy), but Koi.
And buy the way, that's a cool shot!

Awesome shot Lou. Must have been a bit unnerving for the person who just walked by!

Thanks Jelpee. I think they were hungry more than greedy.

Thanks Mtnman,

It is sort of like feeding pigeons. You feed one and next thing you know you have a whole flock!

Lou,
If you don't mind my asking, what took you to Shanghai, vacation, work?

I'm interested as my wife was born there. Her Mom and Dad got out with her in 1949 when she was a baby; literally on the last Nationalist ship out of Shanghai headed for Taiwan. The communists had Shanghai under seige at the time. My wife has family in Shanghai she has never met, so it's on our "bucket" list of places to visit.
