Photo Hunt 68: Creative

 This week’s Photo Hunt subject is “Creative”.

I only wish this was creative. I risked life and limb to get this shot.

It is a very rare photograph of the dangerous Australian Desert Shark.

This was taken some 2,000 Km North of Perth, in the Great Sandy Desert. The line of White Gums at the base of the sand dune indicates an underground stream. Always a likely spot to lose a travelling companion or two to this lttle known but greatly feared desert denizen.

    Criz, thanks :)

    Dr Mom, I beleive they have already begun migrating towards the coast. Perhaps one day they will return to open water.

  14. … but why migrate to open water, when you’ve got Australian tourists to supply your basic needs for food and moisture

  15. Herr G eaGle, alas, as aviation fuel supplies run out, and as sea transport becomes dangerous due to excess hurricanes, tornadoes, cyclones and Rising Cthulhu’s there will be a much lower number of available touristas for this nasty beast.

    Come to Australia where, if the Drop Bears don’t get you, the Desert Sharks will!
