Approaching Lizard Island from the air

I snapped this shot as our aircraft began circling in for a landing on the airstrip in the middle of Lizard Island (the island in the background). Palfrey Island is in the foreground, with the protected lagoon in the middle. The research station is barely visible along the leftmost beach on Lizard Island.

    I have a friend who has been to the Lizard Island research station a few times, and loved it. She says it’s more like spider island, though. She’s a fish person, so I’ve only heard how interesting the fish are and nothing about mantis shrimp.
