Beneath the surface

A trip to Wollongong afforded a visit to the Botanical Gardens for the kids to feed the ducks.
Though as the ducks chase the pieces of bread on the surface, the long forms of eels move beneath the scene.
Its a wonder more ducks dont disappear, with these guys measuring over 2 metres length.

They were very inquisitive and interested in the camera, showing no fear as they fought for bread around my extended arm.
I managed to get one to raise itself some 300mm above the surface to take a piece of bread from my hand.
All in all more fun feeding the eels.

  1. Is there no end to your ingenuity? Underwater video now?
    Great study of the Eels, David.
    Quite right that those guys would be a threat to Ducks, especially the Spring crop of little ones.
