|I couldn’t quite figure out what this mysterious
critter, a master of disguise…
|Until he shot out in a blast of ink – an octopus!
He turned brown, then nestled into a new hiding
spot, and immediately turned the color of sand again.
|With water this pretty,
we could hardly wait to jump in and snorkel!
|A smaller version of the giant clams in Australia,
about as big as my outstretched hand.
Almost neon blue, green and purple – a riot of color.
When you gently disturb the water,
they close their lips in defiance.
|This little guy was so friendly, he was actually
bumping his “nose” against my water camera!
|Bora Bora snorkeling at Coral Gardens.|
|Sharks in captivity while they recovered from
injury. Yes, Mom, I stuck my hand in the tank.
|Beware the spiny sea urchin, an ouch in the making!|
