Ripples and koi

Uploaded: July 11, 2020 | Entered: July 11, 2020 11:51:14


For whatever reason the frogs and herons disappeared from this beautiful pond in Wellesley, MA. Then we discovered several red fish there (koi?) but they did not last either. The pond is slowly dying. Unbelievable and very sad. PS CC, a touch of Topaz.
