Spring is close

On a beautifully bright sunny (almost Spring) day the water was inviting and calm. Decent visibility revealed large numbers of Elasmobranchs (Sharks and Rays) cruising around. The breeding season for Port Jackson sharks has begun with males swimming along the reef looking for potential partners. A small school of kingfish circled, Blue groper explored their territory coming in close hoping for a feed (it’s illegal to feed them but many do, smashing up sea urchins that live between the rocks). Rays of a different type, from the sun radiated through the water making for a very pleasant morning in the bay.
