Someone had thrown bread on the ground and this rat was having a good feed. Every time it was startled it bolted back into the rocks, but came out again after a minute or so. It checked me out each time, but I stood still and it obviously felt I was far enough away to not be an immediate threat.
Compare this bird with the reef heron below. This bird was feeding on crabs and comfortable with me watching it.
My intention with this page is to highlight one photo from each outing and tell its story in a couple of sentences. The subjects will vary - it will be whatever caught my eye or was most special on that day.
