|Octopus taken by Paul|
|Marbel Ray ...photo M Flood|
Octopus are always fun and this one was hiding form Paul Jennings ...........note the white colour telling quite clearly that " I see you and I'm unhappy about it" . Also note the one big eye that never leaves sight of the camera man !!
We are so lucky to get lots of different rays in our waters and its always great to see a large Marbel Ray resting on the bottom .
Its OK to get reasonably close ..........just stay away from the back end were the tail and spike is . NEVER swim on top / over a ray just in case the tail is raised ...........like the photo stay in front and don't touch . Just have a really good look .
YES this is one of the rock alleys at Shark Bank .....it just has to be !!
Single file traffic of sting rays .. an amazing sight and a wonderful photo . Thanks Matt
These natural rock formations act as safe haven and right of passage for larger pelagic fish such as these rays, passing or resting sharks and some big Parrot fish groups
