Koi fish photos
A favourite way to start my day is a leisurely early morning stroll through the Lake Gardens – Perdana Botanical Gardens – Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. It was a particularly beautiful morning and the Koi fish were swimming in the lake. I stopped to watch the Koi fish and take photos of their swimming patterns. I found this to be a hypnotic experience.
Why are Koi fish so special in some cultures?
“According to Japanese legend, if a koi fish succeeded in climbing the falls at a point called Dragon Gate on the Yellow River, it would be transformed into a dragon. Based on that legend, it became a symbol of worldly aspiration and advancement.”

Time in nature always makes my feel good. The beautiful sounds of the forest, and the sunlight playing through the leaves on the trees is without exception magic!
Strolling through the Gardens, I never can predict what treasure I will discover. Some favourite sightings include, a baby Monitor lizard, different varieties of fungus, tortoises and Koi fish coasting through the pond.
If you like Koi fish, then perhaps you’ll also love butterflies.
