This photo was taken from an office during the recent Grand River flood in the US.

The photographer, Lynn Clay, captured the image of a fish swimming by the window on Saturday.

Her office is situated on the lower level of the Old Town Riverfront Building in Grand Rapids, Michigan. She said she hadn't even realised the fish was in the shot when she took the picture with her phone.

The Grand River is the longest in the state of Michigan, with a length of over 250 miles. It crested over the weekend in many towns in West Michigan, hitting record levels. According to reports it peaked at almost 22' in Grand Rapids on Sunday — nearly 4' above flood stage.
