Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

All lunging for the hard roll.

Inspired to post this shot after seeing the example of the Weekly Photo Challenge:  Unusual.  The largest lake in the Commonwealth-Pymatuning State Park.

I have never seen anything like this scene and it was much more dramatic in person. My friend Joan took me here when we went up to see the then abandoned Conneaut Amusement Park while staying with a friend of hers.  She had told me I wouldn’t believe it when I saw these fish. She was right! I have always wanted to post it but then it slipped my mind until I saw Sara Rosso’s email from WordPress today.

Perhaps a video would capture the effort of these creatures, desperate to get the Italian hard roll.  They are all on top of one another.  It seems a crowded existence.

  1. I can hear the flapping of their bodies. Look how open their mouths are ever though they are no where near the bread. Unusual indeed. Glad you remembered to post. It’s an amazing photo.


    • Thanks for taking time to look and leave me some good words today. I enjoy following your blog Francine and feel happy you are doing so well.

      • You’re welcome. It is only recently I began to understand the ping back. I know it has increased traffic to my blog and hope it does the same for you. YUCK is right about the photo. It was one slimy mess.

  2. This photo is great! Those fish are huge! Although a little unusual, I want to know what happens next (lol). How do they all get piece of the roll?
    Thanks for sharing.

  18. the photo carries the feeling of that frenzy for the lone roll. I walked through salmon that thick heading upstream to spawn, and stood in a big holding tank full of live pollock, so the picture is reminiscent. . .
