[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The genus Trygonorrhina, commonly known as Banjo Sharks or Fiddler Rays, can be separated into two species : The Eastern Fiddler Ray and the Southern Fiddler Ray. They are found on the South and East coasts of Australia. Trygonorrhina are demersal species, and have a rounded disc and a large, muscular tail. Large dorsal and caudal fins allow the genus to swim without use of their flaps, minimising bottom disturbance which may attract predators. Neither species possess the venomous barb common to other stingrays despite their common name. The Fiddler Rays are opportunistic bottom feeders.

It is extremely hard to shoot down through moving water like this, and have really sharp results. You did a fine job on this photo considering the circumstances. Good notes! TFS.
