CATCH OF THE DAY

CRESTED TERN, THALASSEUS BERGII WITH SOUTHERN SEA GARFISH, HYPORHAMPHUS MELANOCHIR

I was at Yallingup beach to photograph the waves as they rolled in when this crested tern came careering down the beach calling loudly. As it flew over my head I realised the source of its excitement – a southern sea garfish.
