Stingrays of Hamelin Bay (l) by 

These three images are really “for your interest” pics…

I was at Hamelin Bay, camping over the weekend with my children, and was fascinated by the stingrays at the beach there. They were very sociable and came in every morning and night to be fed,
but more surprising, to be “patted”.
They came in towards people’s hands or legs and rubbed against them like big smoochy cats….and obviously enjoyed the interaction!
It was all so amazing…I just wanted to share a few images with you…
(especially since the tragic accident with Steve Irwin, these creatures have been rather maligned…….and prior to this experience I would have been too terrified to go near the water where they were….
and yes, I got in there and patted them too!!!)
