This week on National Geographic 'Your Shot' is a fun submission project on #bigcats. I took these shots on a private game reserve in South Africa called Inverdoorn. It is also a Cheetah rescue sanctuary. The photo on the bottom left is one of those such cats.
Here are my entries:
Triopha catalinae, commonly known as the sea clown triopha, is a species of colorful sea slug, a nudibranch, a shell-less marine gastropod mollusk in the family Polyceridae. The species is named after Santa Catalina Island, California.
Today we were hanging out in Kelvin Grove in Howe Sound, BC and I found 4 great specimens of Clown Nudi's. I am not going to talk about how cute these little guys were or the fact that I was on the hunt for a Pacific Spiny Lumpsuckers.... Full set can be found HERE.
Yesterday was Remembrance Day here in Canada and it was a beautiful and quite chilly day, but the crowds were out here in North Vancouver to honour our heroes. I also spoke with my grandfather yesterday and it is interesting how that generation never really likes to talk about the war. They are a generation that stepped up, did what was necessary and then came home and got on with life.
I just want to leave you with one photo from yesterday that embodies the day for me.
Full photo set can be found HERE.
Last weekend we replaced the temperature sensor at Halkett Bay just off of the east side of Gambier Island in Howe Sound. Eventually this study will provide us with 5yrs of data and hopefully it will shed a little more light on the health of the sponge reefs in the sound. After getting our job done - we did a bit of exploring and the Rock Fish and Kelp Greenlings love to pose for us on top (or in) the sponges!
I submitted a photo to National Geographic (Your Photo) and this morning I received an email.... I'm selected as one of the Daily Dozen for photo of the day :) Woohoo!!!
