Say hello to this gorgeous Fingered dragonet!🐉(Dactylopus dactylopus)💙~ I've had the hardest time identifying this species and finally!😄 The genus Dactylopus means 'finger-foot', and it contains just two species. Like other Dragonets, they have a tall and extremely attractive dorsal fin. Unlike other Dragonets, they have two fingers, each one made out of a single spine from their pectoral fins.✌🏼 They use these 'fingers' to crawl on the seafloor. This unique species inhabits sandy and weedy seabeds of the West Pacific where they feed on micro-crustacea like copepods and amphipods.🍴 They are beautifully patterned; mottled in browns and white, marked with reds, yellows and electric blue.😍 What a beauty!✨ at Dimakya Island

Hawaiian Turkeyfish Juvie Revealed Lionfish and turkeyfish turn away from a predatory approach because their pectoral and dorsal fins are packed with venom. So this young turkey nudged into a crevasse until (Oops!) arriving at the picture window inside, allowing the family portrait. Maui No Ka Oi. Only Maui ran the aquaribums outa town, and it shows. #uwpics #underwaterphotography #hawaiisnorkeling #uwmacro #underwaterworld #uwphotography #underwatermagazine underwaterphotographer #snorkelhawaii #mauisnorkel #snorkelkauai #snorkeloahu #venturehawaii #snorkeling #hawaiiturkeyfish #hawaiilionfish #lionfish

This little dude is a nudibranch, also known as a sea slug. I believe this specific one is a Cuthona Divae aeolid. I’m not certain though, they’re hard to classify mainly because there are so many varieties. Regardless, they’re absolutely beautiful and this particular one is about 1.5 cm’s. I love spotting these little beauties. They can get much larger as well. • • • • • #scubadiving #scuba #scubaphotography #scubaworld #padi #gue #scubadiver #vancouver #yvr #explorebc #beautifulbritishcolumbia #vancouverwaterfront #whytecliffpark #porteaucove #ocean #marine #uwphotography #underwaterphotography #natgeotravel #divers #canong16 #emeraldsea #greensea #pnw #macro #uwmacro #uwmacrophotography at Howe Sound Vancouver

You are looking at a “resurrected species.” This creature was originally called Aegina rhodina, identified by the famous German naturalist and artist Ernst Haeckel in 1879. Over time this species and similar species were combined in a genus (group) with single species called Aegina citrea based on very similar morphology. Then in 2017, a team of scientists using DNA and taxonomic analysis discovered that their single species was actually 2 new families, 3 new genera and one new species. Our specimen is in a new genera called Pseudaegina rhodina (Haeckel, 1879) This creature is a Narcomedusa, in a group called automedusa because these hydrozoans are entirely planktonic. They don’t have a hydroid stage where they anchor to the bottom or a hard surface. Photographed at night over deep water off Palm Beach, Florida. #uwmacro #nightdive #foodchain #blackwaterdiving #natureflorida #sfups #tinywildthings #palmbeach #jellyfish #invertebrate #invertebrates #zooplankton #hydromedusa #jellyfishes #naturefl #marinebiology #hydrozoan #hydromedusa #narcomedusae #automedusa #puravidadivers

Hawksbill Turtle - on my first dive in Raja Ampat, I saw this turtle - very busy eating the beautiful soft corals - completely unconcerned about the divers in it’s midst. Hawksbill sea turtles have been listed as critically endangered since 1970. #diving #underwaterphotography #scuba #scubadiving #padi #photooftheday #bluewaterdivetravel #sealife #scubadive #uwphoto #uwphotography #underwaterphoto #picoftheday #Nikon #Nauticam #macro #photomag #diving_photography #uwmacro #uwcameras #seabook #turtle #hawksbill @rajaampatbiodiversity @arenuiliveaboard at RAJA AMPAT - The Last Paradise

Brave clown fish is ready to sacrifice everything to protect his native anemone. He was born and raised here and this tiny piece of the big Ocean is his home, his homeland, his life. Hey, people, save the Ocean before it's too late - because the Ocean is the source, the beginning of all life on Earth! And if we do nothing now, the Ocean will die very soon.... And along the Ocean will die this anemone... this tiny clown will die.... only we, the humans, will remain.... But do we need such a world?!

This is tiny Mike the juvenile painted frogfish (Antennarius pictus). Mike is about 10-12mm long and is pretty hard to spot due to his size. Luckily he comes along in quite bright orange. • 📸 @diving_yakra #orange #frogfish #macro #macrophotography #fishofinstagram #bluewaters #underwater_world #underwaterlife #underthesea #uwphotography #uwphoto #underwaterpic #uwmacro #underwaterworld #colorfull #plongée #mergulho #buceo #tiny #instadive #reef #discoverocean #scuba #matchiccreatures #macromood #sonya6500 #sonyalpha #sony #nauticam #pulauweh at Lumba Lumba Diving Centre
