A shoal of Barred Flagtails, (Kulia mugil) circled above Johanna like a cloud. If she exhaled, the ascending air bubbles opened the swarm and the sun shone through.

    Something vaguely similar happens here in Taree each morning and evening with lorikeets (parrots) but their numbers are nothing as great as those fish! However, they are VERY noisy! Also way too fast to photograph. Nevertheless, I am always astonished by the things you see on a regular basis in the sea, Norbert.

  • I would like to see parrots in large numbers too ;-) Thank you Gary.
