Feeding the fish

A local country park is a favourite haunt of ours. Last night we grabbed French bread and hot chicken from the supermarket deli and went there for an impromptu picnic. After eating we strolled round the lake and fed leftover bread to the ducks. Unusually, the ducks were not that interested - but the fish certainly were! This photo is the closest I could get to the moment of a fish grabbing a piece of bread. These fish are very bold. Boldness is not a characteristic I would have thought of ascribing to fish, but having seen these lake dwellers on previous occasions literally snatch bread from under the beaks of the ducks I would say they have it in plenty. What humiliation for the ducks!
