Clever Crow and Mighty Eagle / Two great ancestral beings / Still sorting their problems out 😄
I hope photographer @danbythedesert
doesn't mind me sharing this picture of his. I laugh every time I see it, that crow looks so sheepish, like it has bitten off more than it can chew. And the eagle looks well sick of it's shit. Dan tagged this photo up in Turquoise Bay near Exmouth, and I lived up there for a year or two when I was a kid, and we used to go back every year as a family. I have lots of great memories of Turquoise Bay, a place where the the incredible Ningaloo Reef is metres off the sand.
I don't know a lot about Exmouth's Aboriginal community but I know that Exmouth is West Thalanyji/Jinigudira Country. I've heard that 'Ningaloo' is a local word that means 'promontory' (Exmouth sits on the North West Cape, location of Cape Range National Park) and also 'deep water'. When I finish my PhD i'd like to get back up to Exmouth and yarn with the locals about that Country and try compliment my childhood memories of Exmouth with cultural knowledge and language 🐠🏖🐠

It’s easy to get lost behind the dunes!
When a turtle can’t see which way the ocean is, she can circle for a long time trying to find her way back. Often they do, but as the night turns to morning and the day heats up, the odds of getting out go down.
This lucky green was helped out by our NTP team this morning.
