It was a splendid day. The water was very clear and the sky clear amd bright
blue.We were out with a couple of newlyweds from California on their first
dive and they really hit the jackpot.
I apologize for the quality of this video, it was taken on a clear day,
but the eel and divers were 30 feet below me. I first saw a gang of groupers,
large Naussau Groupers swimming past the divers and then this large Green
Moray Eel. I had heard of this cooperative type of hunting before from one
of the local dive masters.
Nacho and Jill on her 1st dive.
New divers are accompanied by a single dive master/instructor (Nacho) on
their first dives when diving with Sea Robin. Most of the underwater photos
on the Sea Robin website were taken by Nacho. He is an award-winning underwater
This is one of the very few sharks
I have seen while in Cozumel. This one is a "nurse" shark and
they pretty docile. Most of the diving is done on the west side of the island
and divers are lucky if they see a shark at all. The east side of the island
is different. There are many species of large sharks over there. Again,
the divers consider themselves lucky to see them. Being a chicken, I consider
myself lucky not to see them. Although this one was thrilling for me even
though it was 20 feet below me. Or maybe because it was 20 feet below me..
Above is a Fairy Basslet -- it
is only about 2 inches long and very hard to photograph (for me). They dart
quickly in and out of the coral and are quite territorial. They are one
of the more colorful coral fish in the Carribbean. These are a popular salt-water
aquarium fish. I prefer to see them in the Cozumel salt-water aquarium!
Much larger, but also very colorful
is the Queen Triggerfish. I never get sick of seeing these beauties. I have
photographed them many times, but this was a particularly good photo with
clear water and bright sunshine the day I took this. Queen triggers feed
on sea urchins by flipping them over and attacking the vulnerable underside.
You will notice the odd fins on the top of the head. They are flat in the
photo but these can be held erect when threatened and would keep a preditor
from swallowing it whole.
Above is a Filefish when I first
spotted it by a bit of coral. It swam very close to me and turned color
as you see on the right. I am always fascinated when they do this and it
is so rapid. It is an "emotional" expression, feeling threatened.
Actually, this one looked like it was blushing to me. Just kidding.
Filefish are not particularly
good swimmers, their small fins make them appear sluggish in the water.
They are related to Triggerfish. The one above is a Scrawled Filefish. They
live in shallow water and I see them fairly often when I swim in the Dzul
Above is a nice French Angelfish.
I see a lot of these when snorkeling near shore. To the right is an immature
French Angelfish. I have seen them as small as your thumbnail before. The
really little ones are impossible for me to photograph -- too quick getting
back into the coral.
is a local fellow enjoying the water and reading the paper. He was on the
shore just down from my casa. I think he typifies the life here in Cozumel.
No rules, just go in whereever you feel like. What it doen't show is how
hard-working the Cozumelanians are and how little time they get to spend
at the beach.
This is a shot taken
from approximately the same spot as the one above, just on an evening with
very unusual lighting. I did a little experimenting with phototshop and
this was the result.
Another shot, same
day, same area with a different photoshop effect. I am going to be joining
an artists guild here and these are some of the photos I am going to try
to sell. They won't become active until the building by the square has been
finished, expected sometime in December, we shall see, this is, after all,
This was taken on
the East side on a particularly spectacular day.
Now back at my house. This is
a tarantula. It is outside the screen. She had Freckles barking his fool
head off. I say she because she had laid eggs in my window
and was staying there guarding them. I really don't mind these critters
as long as they are outside, but I know when the eggs hatched the babies
would be inside, so I persuaded this girl to leave. I did this very carefully
by moving her out of the way of the wodden shutters and closing them. She
still stayed on for over a day because her eggs were inside the shutters.
After she left I cleaned all the eggs out so we wouldn't have any little
ones in the housel.
