Notes

The image was taken at approximately 2 am in the morning. Various species of fish began to gather in the shallows after dark, and by 10 pm that night the shallows around the lake's edge had numerous fish, including Murray Cod, Redfin and Gudgeons, "sleeping" amongst the stones and weeds.

Thanks Sascha.  That's interesting information.  I'll add it to the image caption now.  I still have a gudgeon shot of yours from that location to add to the site.  It will happen ...
