continuing the ritual

Bread being fed to mullet, some larger milkfish lurking nearby.

 

From the Aquascene website:

" At high tide hundreds of fish come into the shallows looking for a free feed ... It is a ritual that began in the late 1950's when a local resident threw scraps of food to a few mullet. Somehow word got around ... and now milkfish, bream, catfish and many other species join the mullet in the skirmish for a meal."

 

Darwin, Australia
