The Koi at the Castle

We never make a trip to Biltmore Estate without visiting the Koi ponds. Lately we have only visited the gardens, not the castle, so we start at the Conservatory. The koi ponds are up a hill near the house. Seeing the Koi is worth the climb.

There are fish of all sizes and colors. Some are habituated to being hand-fed and come to the edge if one stands still. I love this because it gives an opportunity to see them close up.

The biggest fish are over a foot long. There are many smaller members of the schools.

My favorite Koi are golden yellow. I was thrilled to spot one.

My family has koi in much smaller ponds, so we spend time here visiting these fish each visit.
