Transferring to buckets
Vera Moffett. Lillian and Christoph Camphausen sorting the catch. 

Collecting the catch
Steve and Lillian are transferring the catch (several shrimps plus the fish) into buckets for ID and counting.  

Keeping them wet
Lillian has the dip net half immersed to prevent the fish being out of water.  

Trevor dip netting
Trevor is skirting the edge of the Wild Taro (Colocasia esculenta) which grows along the bank. Wild Taro is an escaped garden plant, now infesting... 

Two buckets, three men

Closer Look
Phillip takes a closer look at his catch.  

Is this a good idea?
Is it wise for a person of Lillian's diminutive stature to enter the pool at the deep end?  

Perhaps not
Oops, it's a little deep here. 

Courage under water
Are Steve and Lillian both standing in the same creek? 

A great moment in science
