Coming out

No, these are not proudly gay goldfish

(although hey, who knows?).  I do know they've
 been hibernating all winter in the lily pond
at the Brooklyn Botanic.  And I think they must
come out of hibernation in stages (?); at this point
they were just kind of floating in place.


  1. Hibernating goldfish, koi too—I didn’t know (the area I live in doesn’t get cold enough long enough). I like learning things. Thanks for this.

    I love the color of goldfish.

  2. Here's a fun tidbit about goldfish. If all of one sex dies out, they have the capability to change sex to keep the species going!


Thanks, merci, grazie, danke, hvala, gracias, spasibo, shukran, dhanyavaad, salamat, arigato, and muito obrigado for your much-appreciated comments.
