A Night Dive at ...

...Port Noarlunga! Who woulda thought it.
An interesting invertebrate. This example was with a few others out over the open sand about 40 metres south of the jetty. A few bubbles detract from the shot, but worth it for the glow around the eyes.

Red Mullet. There are three fish in Australia known by this common name. This one is actually Upeneus tragula. The most obvious feature of this fish is its whskers (but they don't show too well in this piccy). They are used for fossicking through the sand for food.
