Scale Patterns


Some photographers/fishermen will take photos of scale patterns.  These form some interesting "artsy" pictures.  But, they can also be a thing of beauty that many of us don't even notice or take for granted.  Mirror carp, in particular, have some awesome scale patterns since all mirrors are different.  Their scale pattern is like a finger print.  Even some commons have interesting scale patterns because of the varying colors of their scales (some light, some dark).
I set my camera to a macro setting and isolated small sections of the carp's body to take these photos.  They are all taken from fish I have landed in the last week.
