Oh how I love finding long-horned cowfish when diving. They are one of my underwater spirit animals as they seem to be clumsy and always bumping into things, which I do NUMEROUS times a day. Spatial orientation has never been my strong suit...Their green eyes are stunning and the purple markings appear handprinted on their vibrant yellow skin.
They tend to be extremely shy, darting under table coral to hide. Thinking they are being stealthy, they peek out, hoping you have left. However, since I love them so much, I haven't usually departed, much to their disappointment.
They use tiny fins on their sides to propel themselves. To me, it seems like they are always spinning around in circles and giving you the perfect view of their backside. Hmmm...maybe they are trying to tell me something. So, it's all the more sweet, when we do manage to capture a head on view.
Have I also mentioned that patience is not one of my strengths. Photography has helped me tremendously on that front though as I am often waiting for a long time to capture the image I envisioned.
Do you find that photography has made you more patient?
Almost time to get ready for another day of scuba diving..💙 Since the puppy woke me up at 4h30. 🙈
I still find it so weird how on one hand breathing underwater sounds unnatural but as soon as most people get in the ocean, they forget all about it and just relax and enjoy the ride 😊 #scubadiving#blueorchidresort#wanderersandwarriors
