Watery Wednesday #122:

06 Sep

There is a little park that has this wonderful fountain in a man-made pond. The local gov’t used to put crawfish in the pond so that locals can fish them out. I see no one fishing here lately, the gov’t probably has no more budget for crawfish.

Last year perhaps it was when news of a large flesh-eating fish being found and caught in this pond circulated around town. The authorities surmised probably the fish outgrew the aquarium it was in and the owners thought that best way to dispose of it was free it in this pond.

    I hope the rumor of a large flesh-eating fish was just a rumor, but some people do keep piranhas in tanks for some reason.
    Meanwhile, it is a very pretty pond with lovely fountains. It looks like a cool and peaceful place to visit.

    We’ve seen a lot of these in Florida.

    Man-made Falls, come and see.

    I cannot believe there were really flesh eating fish in that beautiful pond. The fountain in the center adds so much to the image. Your captures are so pretty. Wish I were there instead of fighting off 2 days of torrential rains. genie

    This is a very beautiful pond, I hope the rumors of flesh-eating fish were not true!
    Your previous post is also a good one, I enjoyed the photos from–India?–a lot!

    Lovely fountains! Make the park a lovely place on a hot day! I hope the carnivorous fish have bitten the dust, or been removed by now!

    The fountains in this pond are beautiful, and you’ve captured them very well. I hope the rumor was just a rumor.

    Very sad when the budget for the parks and recreations are being cut. There is also fear that Mono Lake may be one of those.

    This is a beautiful park and fountain.

    Love the way the splashing fountain makes a halo on the water.
