Face to face with the “Gem Nudibranch”. This sea slug is one of my favorite at the Poor Knights Islands because of its color. Here you can see the rhinophores (antenna) used as sensors to eat and move. . . . Camera: Nikon D850 lens: 105mm macro Light: Sea&Sea strobe. Housing: @nauticamhousings . . . #uwphotography#uw
My absolute favorite nudi yet is the Nembrotha kubaryana. On the second picture we also have a similar Nembrotha cristata, but If you ask me, the reddish makes the kubaryana even more evil 😆. I'm super excited underwater when I find these bright shining red rhinophores. Fun Fact: did you know that dorid nudibranchs have their anus in the middle of the gill? Luckily they don't smell the water they breathe from 🙈😋. #uwphotographer#underwaterphotography ...

Who loves penguins?! 🐧 Tag a penguin lover! 🖤 Adélie penguins on sea ice. It's a busy season for rasing chicks in summer. It's a white night in Antarctica's summer. No nights. Penguins go fishing all day. Video by @myeonghoseo Via: @fathomlesslife ⠀ #adeliepenguin#emperorpenguin
A killer whale giving a very close inspection! 😮 whose jealous? What would your reaction be? ~ Caption by @olly_scholey Video by @mullettover ~ “This encounter is one of the luckiest I have ever had - seeing a killer whale in clear blue water in the open ocean is extremely rare. We didn’t really know how they were going to respond to us, and given they were transient / Biggs killer whales (the type that eat either large fish or marine mammals) we were a tad apprehensive about getting in the water with them..!

The Jellyfish Dance 🤩🙌 ⠀ Jellyfish usually drift, however, occasionally you will see them swimming. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jellyfish swim by rhythmic pulsations of the umbrella or bell. The movement is very like an umbrella being open and shut slowly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Jellyfish are slow swimmers but speed and low water resistance are not important because they are drifters that feed on plankton. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ However this Jelly could also become a fast swimmer, believe it or not it is an animation..

The Spanish Shawl Nudibranch is one of the most flamboyantly colored creatures in the Sea of Cortez (Mexico). This is the actual color, just like all of my photographs, no filters. . . . . #naturephotography#naturephoto

🐞Amped up superbug🐞 Measuring in at just 1-3mm, ladybug amphipods are a supermacro photographer’s dream subject. These are so challenging to shoot though, because even the slightest current or surge can shift your focus, let alone trying to maintain buoyancy. They rarely sit still for long, so if you can find a family of bugs, stay steady and practice patience, you’ll eventually get the shot you want. These were at ~80’ (24m) depth along a wall. . . 📖 Cyproideidae Ladybug Amphipod 📍Yellow Wall, Nusa Kode, Komodo 🥶 67° F, 19° C 📷 Nikon D850, 105mm f/2.8 (1/250, ISO 80, ...
Sound on 🔈🎶 By @johnbozinov : Weddell seals typically only make these vocalisations to communicate while underwater, although on rare occasions they’ll also make these eerie sounds while hauled out on the ice. For more 👉 Follow us! 👉 @underwater_community Thank you so much 👌🏻👌🏻

Gymnodoris citrina, a small half inch long sea slug, is fairly common in the Marshall Islands, especially while diving at night. Most specimens I’ve found have been pale yellow, rather than dark orange like the individual in this photo. Members of this genus are specialized predators that swallow other nudibranchs whole. In fact, this species is known to cannibalize other Gymnodoris citrina , and will even mate while trying to swallow each other. October 12, 2019 with @carriebearwest and Jay Lord at Kwajalein Island, Kwajalein Atoll, Marshall Islands. . . . . . . . #sluglife#nudibranch ...

Wait for it! 😱 "The single most amazing underwater experience of my life. After almost seven years knocking on this door, crossing my fingers to spot wild orcas in Baja, I had one quick encounter in January, and now this. I feel overwhelmed and incredibly lucky for witnessing this one-in-a-million predatory behavior from the front row." . 🎥 Video/Caption: @jchauser For more 👉 Follow us! 👉 @underwatertvshow Thank you so much 👌🏻👌🏻
Sea turtles may carry barnacles.🐢🍄 barnacles increase surface drag and decrease the overall hydrodynamic shape of the turtle. Barnacles can be pried off with a variety of tools, but care should be taken with those that have damaged the shell. These should be removed with care so as to not create further injury.
