we have babies!!!!!!!!!!

we saw for the first time last night not one, not two but THREE new babies!

I tried to get a clear picture but the humidity was so bad that the lense kept fogging and of course they are LITTLE bitty  babies....

in this pic all three are there ... one at the top by some leaves and the two bigger ones in the middle...
*dont forget you can click on the pic to embiggen!
** usually we dont have any babies as the fish eat the eggs before they have a chance to hatch and grow... and they will eat the fry as well if they can... apparently the lilys are big enough that these guys hid and grew to an uneatable size! :) 
 in this you can see two the littleest one follows the bigger....
 these of course are 6 of the 7 bigger fishes... top is bullet, speckled is gizmo, bogie is facing gizmos head lucky is in the middle, then diamond and at the bottom near the bridge is nugget... Emma the fan tail gold fish was busy eating and missed her photo opportunity.
 Lori and I went to pick up pizza at pizza hut when this cute car pulled in... I doubt her owner would like her being calle cute but she really is!
 we wanted to swim yesterday but storms rolled in early afternoon so the pool remained covered all day.  maybe today we will get a chance to play in the pool.
 the finches love these thistle seed socks... usually there are a lot more than two feasting ....
 the pond is very healthy as we have seen many many of these baby frogs wandering around they are teenie tiny and make the baby fish look big! 
anyway I hope to get better pictures and to come up with some names for the fishes... I have had some really cute and fun suggestions on facebook.... so what do you think they should be named? 
Hope you have a fantastic Sunday.
God Bless.

That is SO neat you can maintain your pond like that--I love it! If I had a pond I would have to put chain link fence over, under and beside it and I still think everything would get eaten. We have grizzlies all over town right now, even coming down by the tourists!

Congrats on new life! I named our fish Doo-Wah, Diddy-Diddy, Dum-Diddy and Doo. Of COURSE you knew music would be involved. :-)
