These small man-made freshwater ponds are used to raise snails for fish culture. The ponds are full of life – insects buzzing around, aquatic larvae preying or being preyed on, snails slowly making their rounds along the sides. Even fish have accidentally made their way as fry. The ponds are chock-full of plants, shooting tiny flowers above the surface. At sunrise, around 5:45 in the morning, as the sun breaks over the horizon, the ponds catch on fire with bright orange glow. As the first light slides over the ponds, the tiny white plants flicker brightly like little candles.
