Big Fat Mega Mama Tench & Fellows

Yesterday, I was free diving and searching some fish in my home lake. The weather was sunny and I saw many awesome fish shining beautifully under the northern sun 🙂 Look forward and you will see the photos of school of tiny baby perch which shined in the colors of a rainbow while the light scattered through them. I also dived into deep, but the assumed burbot wasn’t home in 15 meters, even though I carefully sneaked closer to the rock I mentioned previously. From the shallow water I also found a lot of mating tench, one being a freaking big, fat mega mama tench! The tench were so excited at times that they didn’t care at all about this big odd seal, maybe they thought that I was one of them 😀 I took a couple smaller male with me with my speargun. Finally, I have talked a lot of about stupid and careless people, who throw their garbage into water. I printed some Japan vs. Finland images and spread them around the popular beaches of my home lake. Let’s hope that the prints will reach many people and make the bastards to shape up!


The Garbage to Shores prints I spread around the beaches.




Notice the small perch behind the leaf. Just after taking this photo, it disappeared somewhere. I wonder where? 😀

A green underwater garden.


Millions and millions of chloroplasts, harvesting and turning the quanta of light into chemical energy, simultaneously feeding the fish with oxygen. Beautiful! 🙂

Finally, here are some captures from the videos I took. Maybe in the end of the summer I will make a some sort of compilation about all the videos I have recorded during my trips 🙂
