Today’s photos, like yesterday’s, are from Eamonn Hughes in Wilsonville, Oregon. The first is a shot of the baby koi in his pond, getting one last feeding before settling in for the winter, while the second shows a heron swooping in for…lunch! Watch out, li’l fishies!

    Looks like Eamonn's pond is the ultimate sushi buffet bar for the visiting heron. I know that's the food cycle of nature but the fish are so pretty and colorful, I would begrudge the sharing.

    Your yard is definitely a little bit of heaven, Eamonn. It must make you smile every day.

    Eamonn, do you have a net over your pond to protect the koi? They're too beautiful and EXPENSIVE to be a heron buffet. I'm so impressed with your exquisite garden and photographic talent! I live in the Pacific Northwest and occasionally visit your area. Do you ever open your garden to visitors?
