Sunset on the Swan

Sunset, Swan River, Perth, Western Australia

Just a single photo for a change, a sunset on the Swan River in Perth, Western Australia. Taken earlier in the summer while catching up one evening with my niece and her fiance who live in one of Perth’s inner suburbs. I head over to Western Australia again in early March for another holiday so I’ll categorise this post as an exercise in re-acclimatisation!

Where was I?

And the answer to “What the heck is this?”

Late last month I posted some images of a rather unusual sea creature and invited Photo Morsels readers to submit their suggestions as to what it may have been.

I did indicate that I would post the answer about a week after the “What the heck is this?” post was published, but stuff happens, and nearly a month has gone past.

A quick reminder first as to what this creature looks like. And to provide you with an appropriate sense of scale, this fellow is 5 metres long and weights around 700 kg.

What the heck is this?

Spied a few months back was a rather unusual and bizarre pickled sea creature.

I invite readers to take a stab at identifying what this critter is. No prizes on offer other than a nice warm fuzzy feeling that comes from being correct and the (very limited) internet fame associated with being identified as a marine taxonomy whiz.

Please use the “Leave a reply” box at the bottom of this page to submit your answer.

I’ll let this run for a week or so and then advise this creature’s identity. So as not to spoil the fun for others, I’ll hold any correct answers in the comments approval queue until the answer is announced.  So, if you don’t see your reply posted within a day or so of it being submitted, you may just have hit the nail on the head. Or I may just be busy and haven’t checked my blog!

So, here is the beast…

What's This 001

To provide you with an appropriate sense of scale, this fellow is 5 metres long and weights around 700 kg. And, as I indicated at the top of the post, you are looking at something from the sea.

Happy guessing!

[Update]  I have one correct entry on hand. Any more budding marine biologists out there?
