I witnessed a very cool tussle at Parker Point today.

I fisherman was throwing whiting frames over the side which brought in a variety of hungry residents ready to go to extraordinary lengths for the tasty morsel of whiting.

For sure the most gutsy display of courage was this little crab, who literally went in amongst the thick of the tussle between 3 big sting rays ands 2 eagle rays…grabbed his targeted portion and then off he went!

Only to have me following him with my camera. But he had more totally foiled because he found the perfect little tree to hide behind!

A very special day at Parker Point!

It’s Mine!

Rottnest season is rapidly approaching which prompted me to get some Rotto RAW files out.

A good fun thing to do is to drop some cray heads on the clear sand areas like at Parker Point and Long Reach and then watch the Eagle Rays come in claiming their prize.

They look so cool they way they do the big hump thing and hover over the top of their catch.

The closer you get the more they aggressively push up with the arch.
