The Under Dog

And now something completely different...
I framed this cool mountain doggie in Piornedo,Ancares,Galicia,Spain last june.
He's just eagerly laid down for the pic posing to my camera in a VID (very important dog) mood :-)
What I found interesting about the pic shot is that apart from the cool doggie pose, one can see the mountains reflected in the window door behind him .
Pretty cool, don't you think ?

Panama Pork Fish Parade

Few scientists could have "dreamt of such an extraordinary recovery of marine life at Cabo Pulmo," Sala said in a statement (pictured, Panama porkfish swim by a Cabo Pulmo reef).
Yet the protection model has been known to work, he added: "We know from studies of hundreds of reserves around the world that effective protection results universally in huge increases of biomass of fish," he said.
"In this place the recovery has been exceptionally good."

Call Me A Clown

The clownfish is a type of fish that lives in salt water habitats. It is also called an Anemonefish. Clownfish are typically very bright, orange fish that have three white stripes, one at the head, middle and tail. If you look really closely, you may notice that there are thin black lines around the white stripes. Also, the tips of their fins have a thin black rounded stripe.
These little friends were spotted under Barbados crystal clear waters. Aren't they sweety ?
Just say cheers :-)

Save the Goliath Groupers

Goliath groupers gather annually in spawning aggregations at offshore reefs and wreck sites throughout the Caribbean and parts of Florida. During filming for Americas Underwater Treasures, a two-hour PBS special documenting all the U.S. National Marine Sanctuaries as part of the Ocean Adventures series, Jean-Michel, Fabien and Celine Cousteau witness a congregation of these enormous fish. Dive under the waves with them in this short film and discover the goliath grouper.
