Creature from the deep

For this week’s photo challenge, faces in the crowd, I’ve chosen this moment, where unsuspecting beach goers saw a grounded stingray.

Stingrays of this size or smaller do not usually go near the suburban beaches. They are very common near Elliston, on the Eyre Peninsula and I have had to step around a few small ones at Corny Point, but the crowd attention confirms their status.

I had brought relatives from Poland to Grange Beach, this day, and had to explain all the way home that it really was uncommon. The classically lay-back reaction of Australians did nothing to help my cause.

Using  a ‘vanilla’ filter creates a news event, I believe.

Safe swimming.
