We were at the boat ramp at St Helens beach. We were freezing our buttocks off and weren’t having much luck finding any interesting critters.
Seth and I decided we’d quickly check out the shallow waters along the Rippleside Beach part of the carpark. We were so lucky we did!
We found this interesting Balmain Bug in water. Seth was able to catch it in his net and put it in a bucket. We were able to get a good look at the top and underside before putting it back in the water. It’s such a fascinating species. Seth is really good at finding marine life.
