You Capture - Emotions (Or Do Fish Have Them?)

Last weekend Mr. Right and I worked hard to spring clean and revamp our large koi pond/water garden. This project involved carefully moving all 13 special and much-loved koi to the small pond while we worked on the much needed cleaning and re-working of their larger space. Below you'll see what I perceive as excitement and happiness as they dash about exploring their nice new, CLEAN space:

And then here's what I perceive as curiosity or interest while they try to figure out if that frog is real or not and if it was there before:

And lastly, I think my adorable koi even show evidence of the emotion, greed. Somehow they never think there's going to be enough food for everybody:

So you tell me. Do koi have and show emotion. I think they do but not everybody loves koi like I do.

For more and better emotion pictures or to join in the fun, visit Beth at Ishouldbefoldinglaundry.


  1. I love these! I'm incredibly jealous. Koi are absolutely amazing, and I do believe they're capable of emotion. Great pictures.

  2. I do believe they have emotion, I see how excited they get whenever their "Mommy" gets home from work and goes outside to see them!!! Great shots of your babies!


  3. I love that greedy shot - great capture!

  4. Great captures. I'm pretty sure I spotted Cubbie.

  5. What beautiful koi! We bought a house a few years ago and "inherited" a koi pond. We have added some new members to the family and I love them and know the emotion of which you speak!

    So glad to have come across your site! (Follow Beth's blog from Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans too)
