Comments

The Irrabuga
"Sunlight glimmers on small bubbles that pierce the surface of the water as the irrabuga (dolphin) herds the mulyguda (mullet) towards the shallows. The hunter lies in wait as the mulyguda come within striking distance.
Each summer for generations the irrabuga have helped my people catch mulyguda - a close bond we share with these beautiful creatures to this day."


Darryl Bellotti - 2010
