Another stunning video worth sharing. Did you know sea turtles eat jellyfish? I didn't until recently. As you watch the jelly at the beginning, around 0:16 you'll see something unexpected.
I just saw this, and you need to see it too. Make sure you select full screen; you won't be disappointed.
I was playing in Lightroom for a few minutes yesterday, and figured I'd really manipulate the heck out of this one picture. It's pretty amazing how something can be cleaned up, especially if you are good at this (doing it for a living). Me, I just wanted to demonstrate the difference between what came off the SD card vs. what the final result could be. I'll show you the better image first.
You can see this Frogspawn coral without annoying distractions. I used a tool to black out all
I thought about trying to get a reflection shot of my reef today, but it's not possible with this aquarium. The livestock is too far away from the surface, and the tank doesn't have enough front-to-back depth. So I changed my plan and shot with my 105mm macro lens.

When my tanks are being blasted with blue, I do enjoy seeing the corals fluoresce. I tried to get a few pictures of the frags that are growing into little colonies as they wait for their bigger home. Super blue, filtered back with Photoshop.
This acan colony was almost completely destroyed by pest anemones, but I saw some life and moved it into the frag tank. Look at the size of that one polyp. There's more DNA popping out nearby as well as behind it, so I have about four polyps
