Alphabe Thursday F is for Fish

June 27, 2013

I know nothing about fish.  I know that some are very beautiful and colourful and others are exceedingly ugly and less colourful.

Some are edible and super nutritious and others perhaps not so tasty.

I imagine to live in the sea is much like that on land and pretty precarious. Big fish eat little fish and each one goes to great lengths to protect himself and its family from predators.  Some stay on the bottom of the sea and others find hiding places in the rocks and weeds. Only coming out when they need to find food such as tasty vegetation or a smaller fish or two.

So while swimming around in a clear blue sea; not doing much except to look pretty and catching  a fish occasionally looks like fun; it is not a lifestyle I aspire too. Especially, that of the ugly one who lives at the bottom in the gloom and doom.

It looks to me as if only the whales and sharks get any sort of recognition and choice of diet; but even they have to watch their back.

My little gallery was inspired by a book called The sea horse ; the shyest fish in the sea by Chris Butterworth and illustrated John Lawrence.

    I believe I would rather not be a fish! Much too easy to wind up on someone’s dinner plate…. yikes! Sweet prints — I like the sea horse; they are such interesting creatures!
