Jumping Fish!











It's a wonderful thing when the pleasant unexpected happens along the journey of life. I have walked over our town bridge hundreds of times yet I have never seen the fish jumping like they were last evening. A couple of young fellows fishing from the bridge had caught a small catfish and made mentioned of mullet. We know there are eels, bull sharks and perch in the river also. 

The rippling rings were quite fascinating to watch in the stillness of the sunset as I tried to anticipate and capture the hopping fish on camera.

Dear Karen,
what a pleasure to see this calm water, the Sun goes down, the light .... and, of course: the Fish, jumping and you got him to Photograph this scene.

Wish you a wonderful day, greetings

Wonder why they jump then?
To escape the carp and sharks or to catch flies above water?
Or to see the beautiful sunset more clearly maybe? lol
Theres such natural beauty if we open our eyes to see properly!
