shadows and fish


please click on photo to see shadows up close


I haven't been to the teaching garden at Farmingdale State College since last April. Thankfully I made it back there yesterday before the frost kicked in.  It was a simple delight to walk through the different garden "rooms" and take in all of their amazing plantings. I was also looking for shadows to photograph and was surprised to find them here. Aren't they a cute little family? My son noticed the four little ones followed their Mama and Papa wherever they swam.

I've never seen such a cute little fishy family. The big mum and dad shadows are great, and I can just make out the subtle little shadows of the kiddie fish. Really sweet shot!

Wherever the fish
swish their feathery tails—ah,
dark shadows appear!

A pretty photo as well as appropriate - I often pass the college and will check out the Teaching Garden about which I had not heard!

Spiders are amazing creatures. They're such good engineers!
Great close up photos.

How cute! I wonder if the Mommy or Daddy fish ever asks "Do I have to come back there?" LOL!
