Gone Fishing

On a recent visit to the Peak District Lead Mining Museum I noticed these two boys hanging over the railings, trying to catch the attention of the fish in the pond outside the museum.

Banded jewel fish  – Hemichromis elongatus – probably not for sale at Hilton Aqua Emporium. I caught these fish in the Zambezi River, above the Victoria Falls, and kept them in my tank at home. I love the subtle, piggy-pink belly.

A fishing trip to the Lower Zambezi, near Mana Pools – one of my favourite places on Earth.

A Tigerfish – Hydrocynus vittatus – definitely a catch worth smiling about!

The Color your World challenge will run January through April, for 120 days, with a new Crayola color topic posting each day. Join in daily, or post at your leisure.

Enter your photos, drawings, quotes, poems, stories, anything, as long as it is inspired by the color of the day.

Since this is a daily challenge, I will not have time to compile a link list daily for participant entries, however, (1) tag your post #cyw or #coloryourworld so others can follow along in the reader, (2) share your link in the comment section of each color post and (3) sign up on the home page. When you fill out the form on the home page, a link to your blog will be added at the bottom of that post – that way other participants can find all your challenge posts.
