These pictures were taken with a 60mm macro lens. I hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I enjoyed taking them!
Welcome to the birth of what could quite possibly be the most important Blog in the history of man. Whether your choose to return or not, I hope you enjoy your visit.
This is a picture of a smooth trunkfish. Sometimes they are sold in aquariums. However, they make poor pets since they may excrete a toxin when under stress, and this toxin can kill it, as well as all the other fish in the tank. Of course, these beauties can be safely enjoyed in the open ocean by snorkelers and scuba divers alike! I strongly encourage anybody who is interested in diving to take up the sport.
Edited: To delete reference to website which was too difficult to maintain. WordPress Blog is all I needed. Imagine that!
Sea turtles, like so many other marine animals are critically endangered. They are killed as “by catch” (the fisherman’s term for “collateral damage”), along with millions of tons of wasted (non-consumed) sea life, in the quest for earning a profit by selling seafood. Eat responsibly. Try not to consume fish that are caught irresponsibly. Ocean caught shrimp is notorious for killing a disproportionate amount of sea animals, including turtles.
