  4. I've always been fascinated at how these pretty little fish live among anemones that are deadly to others.

  9. You really do get around don't you?

    You'd love Beaufort I think, and there are a ton of wrecks off the NC coast accessible to divers. From the colonial period on up. The U-352 is near where I took my Watery Wednesday shot for this week, which has the distinction of being the first U-Boat sunk by the Coast Guard. There's a (1/3? 2/3? I forget just now) scale replica of part of it in the main tank of the NC Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores. I've got some shots that include it that'll be appearing in the next few weeks or so.

    They don't call it the Graveyard of the Atlantic for nothin' after all.

  13. Well, Bobbie, I think Nemo is hiding. And disguising himself as a football. His eyeballs give him away. So does your 'big picture'.

  15. Thanks, everyone.

    This Nemo wasn't snoozing. Far from it! He was darting around so much, playing hide and seek in that anemone, it was hard to get the photo.
