Moniteau, PA

Carp swingers?? Maybe a little threesome action perhaps?

Actually these are spawning carp. I had the day off and went for an early morning drive to a place I hadn’t been to in about 10 years. It’s a game reserve/game lands located around good-sized wetlands. A large potion of it is a “no entry for humans” area while the rest are hunting/fishing grounds. I saw a LOT of wildlife but just couldn’t seem to get my camera pointed fast enough! Uggh! I saw deer running through water, a buck framed in perfect light, a nice sized turkey and a red-tailed hawk launching from a dead tree to just name a few of the shots I MISSED!

Just as I was leaving I found an old road that lead into the water. There were very large schools of carp spawning not far off shore. After repeated attempts to capture them breaching the surface I finally gave up and began to leave. As I walked towards the car I heard noise close to shore. It was a school right under where I was standing!

Click! Snap! Snap!

Just 4 days to go until Cat returns!!
