Fishing


Australasian Darter, Murray River

My attempts don't quite compare to some our fellow bloggers fishing shots but I still thought they were of interest to show how Australasian Darters catch their fish!

They spear them straight through the middle, paddle to shore and then un-skewer them.

  2. Great photo captures. I haven't even managed to get close enough to those birds to see that kind of action :-(

  6. Thanks for sharing this info Amanda. I had no idea a bird like this was a swimmer. I even googled to find their feathers aren't waterproof - amazing.
    Wonderful shots of the action.

  7. This method seems a much better idea than the "clamp a damp fish in my beak" approach!

    Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.
