So my friend Riley was sitting in her house the other day when she heard this loud thump. She wasn’t able to figure out what it was, but then later in the day she finds this big fish in her front yard! I was there when she found it and we were like “What the hell?”. So then I got to thinking that it must have been a bird of prey that swiped the fish from the wetlands nearby and lost it while flying over her house. Later I looked up all the fish that live in the wetlands and decided that this fellow is a Largescale Sucker. I took pictures of the whole body , but they were kind of grody so I thought I’d spare you!
We spent Easter with our friends and of course I took pictures. I’m pretty happy with this portrait of Sabine. What a girl! I’ll post more Easter pics tomorrow.
