I took the photos below when we visited a Sydney Sealife Sanctuary in Manly, Sydney. It’s a place visited mostly by families with children keen enough to educate them and or perhaps just to capture a glimpse and show to the kids how fishes swim and live underwater. I was too, fascinated and amused in taking photos of these fishes, big and small. You’ve got to see them also if you haven’t yet.
This is a quick snap shot I took after chasing this fish many times around us above a huge Sealife Aquarium, as if saying to me “catch me if you can.”
Can’t get any better such as this one for a good shark photo. The shark swam too fast more than a quick focus and a click of my camera.
Focusing is the problem with this photo, though the squids were behaving steadily and just waiting for good snapshots.
A sting ray, slow and elegant swimmer.
The other fishes though small were also awesome and colourful.
Sea Shells called here as Pipis.
I like sea shells; they’re very nutritious and edible! We found these sea shells they call Pipis while we were holidaying north of Sydney in a bay called Myuna Bay in Lake Macquarie, New South Wales. We discovered them by accident when some of our guys found some of them buried in the shallow sandy bay while the kids were enjoying their bath.Then later at midday some girls, there were six of them, of Chinese descent came down and started scouring down the bay for these sea shells complete with buckets to fill on. So, we were convinced that there were heaps of sea shells in this bay. We too, gathered some more. In the fish market at Sydney, these sea shells are sold per kilo and are very expensive. But mind you, sea and marine life are protected by the government and there are limits to whatever catches taken out from their sanctuaries.
