Wreck Diving RMS Athens.

Went scuba diving looking for you, but you were no longer there. A totally rusted engine block breathing fresh air showed us where you should’ve been.

Any sign of your existence has all but disappeared. Guess that’s what happens when heavy ocean waters pound against you for more than 150 years.

Scuba Diving With A Parrot.

Scuba Diving Rambles - Parrotfish

Parrotfish

Yes, I see the parrot in parrotfish. Totally. The large, powerful beak. The striking, beautiful, bold colours. The pecking as it consumes. It even has wings… well, sorta.

The resemblance is so ditto I actually tried having a conversation with one while scuba diving in the Maldives. Although it never replied to my “Hello Pretty-Polly!” greeting underwater. Or my “So, you’re obviously not polyunsaturated, are you?”

Phew, definitely need to check the air mixture in my scuba diving cylinder after this dive.

Scuba Diving - Feather Star

Feather Star

Open lines for feeding time underwater. A feather star stretches out a feathery fan and gathers what it can filter from the ocean current. Microscopic morsels caught in its soft linear webs.

Arms curl inward and transport the prey to an open, waiting mouth. Free-swimming and stalkless they prowl the muddy ocean floors.
