Fun at the Conservatory

This is just a small amount of the exciting things you can see at the Franklin Park Conservatory. I didn’t attempt to properly name anything, since I don’t know their proper names. I hope you enjoy! If you are ever in Columbus, Ohio, I highly recommend visiting this marvelous place!

Weekly Photo Challenge: The World Through Your Eyes

Koi Beauty koi at FPC Mr. Koi Mr. Koi in reverseHere is a nice look at the koi pond water feature at the Franklin Park Conservatory. They removed some big glass art balls that were by Chihuly. They also removed all the damn coins people threw in there. (Don’t throw stuff in ponds. It is harmful to the fish.) It is easier to see the fish now too. They look really happy, their big selves swimming gracefully. Mr. Koi, seen in photos 3 and 4, even did a happy roll over. Too cute. Koi so happy they play! This is as close to their view as I can get without being very disruptive and probably ejected from the conservatory. And I wouldn’t like that!


Prairie Evening

Red Winged Black Bird Prairie Pond
These are from yesterday. There were lots of Red Winged Black Birds. I wonder if they wonder why it is so chilly? They also seemed a bit camera shy. But, I will say it was really nice to hear their beautiful song again. Spring must be here even if it does not feel like it.
