Weekly Photo Challenge – Circle

Sea Urchin

Sea Urchin

Here’s a literal interpretation of the challenge for this week. I had never seen a sea urchin that had made its home on the top of the reef. They usually like their hidey holes and all one sees are their spines sticking out of the nooks and crannies on the sides of coral heads. This shot was taken on Bloody Bay Wall in Little Cayman.

  5. Happy New Year, Cathy. I thought at first that I was looking at an eyeball after a monumental stick poking. Thanks for the explanation!

      Well, hello there, V! I have been thinking about you recently and wondering how you’re doing. So nice to see you here.

      I know, the photo takes some explanation to understand what we’re seeing. I had never seen a sea urchin just perched on the top of the reef before. So this amazing blue mouth and the black and white spines were amazing to me. Thanks for coming by. Hope you’re doing well and Happy New Year!

    Urchins are very indicate, and you’ve captured that … but the depth of the photo is what struck me the most. Well done!

      Thank you so much, Dawn! I had never seen an up close view of the top of a sea urchin before, so this brilliant blue color was very new to me. Thanks so much for your support here. Happy New Year and I hope we can get together in 2016!
