zombie fish

midsize thumbnail

This was at the end of a spillway from a lake. The water was choked with algae and trash, partially dammed by a concrete walkway running crosswise. As I passed over the walkway, I saw a fish lying upside-down in the water, not moving -- obviously dead, right? That's when this picture was taken. But it moved when I touched it, and swam away on its side. I managed to catch it (it put up a very small fight), and transferred it to the other side of the barrier, where other fish were thriving. Who knows? Maybe it was just pinin' for the fjords...
