    September 2022 underwater photo competition - rocks

    Congrats to Firefly for winning last month, as agreed, I will choose a theme again this month as Firefly won't be around for the setting of the poll

    Trying for a broader theme this time to hopefully get more entries, so for September 2022 the theme is 'Rocks'. The photo can be of rock formations, a diver or marine life hiding behind rocks or sat on rocks, as long as rocks are the main theme of the photo, it counts.

    Hoping to see a few lovely rock photos!

    The competition will close at BST midnight on the 30th September.

    Thank you and good luck!

    Messing about with a toy Yellow Submarine at Chepstow, it kept nose-diving, in this instance onto a rock.

    Just another "rock."

    I tried to signal to my buddy that I'd seen one of these on my first ever Red Sea dive - they literally thought I was having a fit and tried to 'rescue' me, because there was nothing there!

    Ah! wonderful Crocodile fish Including the eye which is amazing. Not an Entry.


    Cymbacephalus beauforti
    or Beauforts Flathead if it is the same species. I think Wiki is out of date here and the species is pan tropical.

    I think this is the Red Sea one https://blog.mares.com/crocodilefish...eps-11959.html
    There are loads of spp, mostly in Asian waters, including yours.

    I don't suppose the taxonomists have got round to looking at the DNA of Crocodile Fish yet. So who knows how many species there are. Or indeed what a species is anymore!
