Another set of fish haiku

black piranha

dark and dangerous / black piranha wait, lurking / red of tooth and eye


starkly camouflaged / head standing leporinus / black bands on yellow

rainbow smelt

Invasive species / Not good for ecosystems / rainbow smelts been dealt

Tambaqui eating2

So fruitful a fish / Seasonal floods provide food / Giant tambaqui

Greenside Darter

Among the cobble / Of fast moving stream riffles / live greenside darters


In the deep channels / Lord of mighty Amazon / prowl piraiba

orangethroat darter

breeding colors pop / bright for a bottom dwelling / orangethroat darter
