      when can we start taking pictures for it? My problem last year (other than it got really nuts in fall) is I didn't get pictures taken. Though this year I'm a bit more organized?? ok maybe not, but if summer time pics can count maybe I have a chance lol

      It's already March, weird. It'd be nice if summer pics counted. More entries probably. And the fish would be fatter.

      I have a very nice Kohaku that I would like to enter in the 2009 show, however, she stresses over everything. Pulling and bowling her for a picture will stress her big time and you know what a Kohaku looks like when stressed.

      I am not familiar with regular or virtual koi shows as far as this stressing matter is concerned.

      Will she be penalized in the show for the red that comes up on her white when she is stressed? If so, then no use putting her through the stress of netting and bowling her.

      I hear your concern, many times high class fish stress easily. especially those that are tancho or shiro utsuri or Gin Shiro.

      From a judges stand point it is easier to see the pink from stress in a live koi as opposed to the pink caused by the onset of a disease. So from a photo it puts us
      in a more difficult position.

      So you may have to try and throw some food off to the side to get her comfortable in her own environment and work on your camera skills to compensate for the inability to net and handle. Be patient, don''t give up...your mantra is "where there is a will, there's a way"!

      Bottom line is.... even if you have to net, bowl ,and photo, she'll have a chance rather than none at all by not entering. Good luck

      Dick, thanks for the encouragement.

      She really is a very nice fish and I would love to enter her in the Virtual show.

      Maybe if I just bowl her a few times, for just a few seconds, not taking any pictures, she might become more relaxed with the procedure.

      She is the one that jumped from the pond and I was fortunate to save her and she spent about a month in my QT recovering.

      When she was ready to go back into the pond, I had someone help me as I wanted to take a few pictures of her. I was only able to take 2 pictures and then even through the camera I could see she was stressing, so immediately put her into the pond.

      Well don't keep me too far in the dark as I'm looking to provide recommendation to upgrade WWKC and KP. Lets make sure not too many Mods are added in KP, as we need to minimize transitional bugs when upgrading to current version of vBulletin...... As long as The Koi Show site resides outside KP its OK. We can just link up to it......

      Are you in the Web Site committee?
