Salmon Forest

Noticing a run of salmon cruising through the upper realm of the pylon forest of Rapid Bay Jetty I gently rose into their midst.

This stunning school cruised through and around me before disappearing into the open water gloom. A little patience paid off and they came back through again for a second run.

Then I noticed the impostor, the masked bandit amid the crowd. Of all places, here under the waves I could hear that childhood Sesame Street song, ‘One of These Things’.

To be fair that solitary kingfish swam like the salmon, was shaped like the salmon and probably believed itself to be a salmon. Who am I to judge if a kingfish chooses to be identified as a salmon.

Just another amazing experience under Rapid Bay Jetty.
