The salmon season is starting!

Each year in the South West of WA we have a salmon run (Australian salmon, not the Tasmanian or Canadian species). As they follow the coastline north they are accompanied by all sorts of predators. The most numerous are bronze whaler sharks although sometimes I think the salmon fishermen outnumber them. I took these drone shots of the bronzies in a school of salmon. (They look out for sick or injured salmon or those that are not watching as closely as they need to).

The next day I went back and although there weren’t as many salmon I took these photos of bronze whalers. You can see where they get there name from.
