Photographer's Note

If you look carefully at right along the shoreline under the overhanging rock, you will spot an Australian fur seal. These animals were hunted almost to extinction in the 19th century. They are making a comeback and are smart enough to know that sharks don't like swimming through the rough surf, so they make their colonies inside the surfline around Rottnest Island. This is Dyer Island near the south east coast of Rottnest Island, taken from a tour boat that goes right round the island.
