Stingers at Blue Heron

Recommended Posts

As already pointed out, with Alex's run in with a Portuguese man-o-war, the stingers were out in force at Blue Heron Bridge last night and today.

Thanks Stew, I'm probably dumber as well. :)

I was all hooded and gloved up; still got a few twinges around my mouth.

Challenging things to photograph these, but really wonderful blends of color and translucency.

I got done by an unknown jelly in the Maldives a few years ago when I went night snorkelling off of my water bungalow, it was nothing like sting of one of these but painful all the same. Like Steve Williams said. plenty of rum.

Pretty cool (and well placed) 7 bladed lens flare there on the last shot. What aperture (and lens)?

 

Hope those stingers are still there tomorrow... :-)

Jeff,

 

Really like your pics, especially the last one.

I'm always afraid to get to close

Well done,

Elmer

Thanks again guys. Yeah Drew, I'm quite intrigued with these guys, think I need to add some type of additional barrier around my mask and reg so I can really get up into these guys.

Here's one more in Black & White; nice and delicate I think.

Real nice shot, like the composition and how it is set off the background with depth. Nicely done.

Beautiful shots...esp. the last two! I'll be diving at the bridge this Friday and I'll be watching for these lovely hydroids (with full skin protection of course!). Robyn
