Fish Bed

I took a walk beside a creek close to my church looking for shots of birds &
butterflies. I saw an orange blob in the creek and went for a closer look. I saw a fish bed, a small collection of pebbles with several adult fish and maybe a hundred orange fingerlings. When I got home, I was very disappointed to see the soft focus. I went back a few days later, but the fish and the bed had vanished. I would not normally want to post a picture that wasn't crisp, but the subject is so cool, I made an exception.

I kind of like the haziness about it. I;d almost consider cropping a section of the orange fish on their own and making it a feature-losing the larger fish.

I think these guys are creek chubs but I'm not certain (pretty certain they're some type of chub though).
