A small ballan wrasse is poking around on the sea floor in a bed of eelgrass (Zostera marina). Lots of snacks are available for its lunch ....

(video grab so image quality isn't optimal)

Good water clarity - is this the edge of an estuary or tidally filled pool?
We don't have many underwater photos on NG and this one is great given its a video clip.

From just outside the summer cottage Ruth and I stayed over the last weekend (see yesterday's post). The sea water is quite clear.

I was pondering whether or not to post a short video extract instead of a frame grab, but wouldn't want to make a potentially resource-intensive incentive to others :) After all NG is on a server with finite resources available and it costs us enough already to run.

Enjoy Frank!
  Jacques, I like that new Street Art and your presentation even more.

  This images were taken  in the last day of the workshop so nobody but me usually get to see them. Last day is reserved to video recording for sharing in social media as the work with the pictures is already done. I have for or five versions of this window light with dancers in various compositions and actions. Here one

Paco, that conveys the intensity of the dance very well -- indeed.

Thanks Paco ! You do know how to manage that Z6 with your dance pictures. Great as always :-)

The flare gives pleasant atmosphere to the image.  Nice!

16-day-moon.

It is still tough to capture such a scene even using the state-of-the-art camera like SIGMA fp with a 24MP BSI sensor.

No. It's a dedicated underwater drone (Gladius by Chasing Innovation).
