PhotoFriday – ‘Change of Season’

This week’s Photo Friday entry: ’Change of Season’

Since I don’t live by the sea and dive in the same place all year around it is difficult for me to show you a change in season as per the theme (without showing you photos of my back garden shed in spring, summer, autumn and winter)! However, many places have seasonal creatures so I would like to share some photos of those with you.

Winter:

In Florida, in winter, the sea gets too cold so the manatees have to come into the fresh water springs of crystal river to keep warm. This is a great time to visit that area to see them…

Summer:

In summer, off the coast of mexico great aggregations of whalesharks come to feed on the newly sporned fish eggs.

Also in summer: off the coast of Sinai in the Red Sea there are two weeks when there are mass spornings of all sorts of fish. The most impressive are the snapper…

If you want to see more of my underwater photos from various places then check out the galleries in my Reef Beasties Gallery.
