CAMERA CRITTERS #260

HAPPY FIFTH ANNIVERSARY TO CAMERA CRITTERS - CONGRATULATIONS MISTY! I THINK THAT IS GREAT AND YOU HAVE BROUGHT SO MUCH PLEASURE TO US ALL THROUGH THIS MEME.  THANK YOU MY FRIEND!

The last time we were at Meadowlark Gardens the Koi had become active.


Did you know that the oldest Koi ever recorded was 226 years' old?  According to Wikipedia "one famous scarlet koi, named Hanako was owned by several individuals, the last of whom was Dr. Komei Koshihara.  Hanako was supposedly 226 years old upon her death in 1977, based on examining one of her scales in 1966."


However, the average Koi lives to be between 25 and 47 years' old.


Koi in Japanese means "carp".  In Japan they are symbols of love and friendship.
