Most every day we enjoy walking down to our Florida pond and feeding the fish. We stock it every spring with bluegill (bream), tilapia, and catfish. Also living in the pond are bass, grass carp, turtles, and crayfish. Wading birds and otters sometimes come to eat the fish. This year’s baby fish have been extra hungry, and swarm to the dock to be fed. What a fun way to relax at the end of the day!

About Pam
Richard and Pam lived in the San Francisco Bay Area 14 years (1987-1999 and 2008-2011). They lived in Florida 13 years previously, until returning in July 2011 to present. They hope their photography will encourage you to get out and discover nature's beauty in your own backyard, parks, and wild places.

  2. Ooh, love the ethereal look to the first image. The decision to convert it into black and white really gave it extra depth.

    Wow, I can’t believe the fish is almost eating directly out of your hand. What a great way to start the day:)

    Just wonderful… I too LOVE that first image!! 🙂

  5. What a joy to have this special spot right outside your home. Although the fish are so lovely to see, it must be such a treat to see all the other creatures who come to eat the fish, too ;-D.
