Good Morning Sweetie...
Oh my goodness gracious, I love the blue sea background and your new header is breathtaking. I love, Love, LOVE it. A gorgeous home to visit.

Does this sea turtle not say HAPPY this morning? He appears to have a smile on his little face. The colors are just so gorgeous and match the sea. Maybe for him to hide down there in safety.

Thank you for sharing this morning. I love this share, and have so enjoyed my visit with you here at Shellbelle's Tiki Hut.

Many hugs and much love sweetie, Sherry

It always amazes me at the way these photographers capture these fantastic underwater shots of animals. I wouldn't get that close & on a reef I'd be watching for bigger things like sharks. It's nice to be able to appreciate it through the talent & skill of others.

Love ya!

Every week I try to make my week as good as this pic. Some weeks are harder than other to achieve this goal.

Very captivating..., the details are amazing. And of course you don't usually see these animals up-close.

What a cool picture! Make sure to check out Ocean Defenders, Hawaii on facebook too. I eagerly wait for their photos every day; coral, turtles, whales and all kinds of sunrises and sunsets.

Love of the Sea said...

This is an amazing photograph. I can not believe the clarity and how close up it is. I can study this photo for a long time and not be tired of looking at it.

I love the beach and everything that goes with it! I love the waves lapping at my feet. I love the feel of the sand between my toes. I love the roar of the Pacific and the gentle waves of the Gulf of Mexico in Florida. Let's talk about beaches around the world, bonfires, building sandcastles, swaying palm trees, flamingos, clambakes, sunrises and sunsets. If it's tropical, it fits this blog!
