Carp kites for Japanese Children's Day (special request by Ann - happy belated birthday to your daughter!)

That holiday was celebrated last Wednesday (May 5th), but due to the backlog of photos from the snake festival, the carps are going on the blog today.


Too bad there's no wind and the carps are not "swimming".
This is a Skywatch Friday entry.

Thank you both for your comments. I think these carps look like they're gasping for air/wind. Poor fishies!

Vernz, Laura and Boom,
yes, they are pretty. It's a lovely custom. I just wish the sky was bluer that day. :)
