Solomons 2006 Favorite of the Day, April 21, 2007    [ Diving,Photography,Travel ]

When I indulge myself in shooting clownfish, I’m just as enamoured of the beautiful negative space of the anemones as with the fish themselves. And sometimes the anemone is the primary subject. So many different types, jeweled glass sculptures.

Solomons 2006 Favorite of the Day, April 14, 2007    [ Diving,Photography,Travel ]

There’s a lovely site in the Solomons called Mirror Pond where I have lots of little friends that I have made over the years. In fact, there are hundreds of them. They are little coral hermit crabs, also called burrowing crabs. They live in the holes that were previously occupied by christmas tree worms. Some of them live quite close together and I imagine them having neighborly chats daily.

Solomons 2006 Favorite of the Day, April 7, 2007    [ Diving,Photography,Travel ]

There are pygmy seahorses in the Solomons. Most of the pygmies I’ve seen there are the Hippocampus denise. I’ve seen the bumpies (bargibanti) there, but very rarely. The denise pygmies tend to be very small. This guy in particular was really tiny, and shy, but seemed rather interested in me. I have several photos of him checking me out, and he was very cute.

I have flowers blooming all over the yard right now, and a lens that I wanted to try out, so yesterday I had a seven minute shoot in the waning light before dusk. Here are a few of the results.
