BTW, I told Stephen Frink I was sure the change to A4 format was done to highlight the manatee's ample attractive body mass & round curves ;-)

The last notable print magazine manatee cover I could locate was Jason Bradley's cover of Fathoms - Fall 2007. That's too much time between manatee covers! Here they are side by side, my Alert Diver 2014 Manatee & Fathom's 2007 Manatee cover:

If you would like to know more about when I took these photos, etc. they are part of my new post "Memorable Manatee Moments 2013"


or it is also here on my main site: http://www.oceangrant.com/#!/blog


I found it interesting that elbuzo said it was the best March 2013 he has seen for whale conditions, because it was the same with the manatees here. Usually March is very hit or miss, but we must have had very conducive weather patterns to make waters clear and animals abundant at Silver Banks and Crystal River.
