Are you managed or monitored?
Shiny things collected by an easily distracted marine biologist. There will likely be fish, critters, science, other people's art, fannish stuffs (mostly of a science fictiony or cartoonish nature), teapots, things that make me laugh, and occasionally, kids.

From the Department of Awesome Natural Phenomena comes this amazing tornado of Jack fish in the waters of Cabo Pulmo National Park in Mexico captured by marine biologist Octavio Aburto.
Click here to watch Octavio’s video of the fish twister.
When you live in a place where there’s no place to hide, really the only place is behind one of your fellow school members.
Edit : I should know better - the word tornado misled me. I didn’t watch the video right away, intending to look at it later. When I did, I realized that these fish are not acting panicked in any way or even swimming very quickly.. Which is good, because I was a bit worried for the diver if they had been - these are decent-sized fish. Here’s a bit more info on this photo - it’s actually a spawning aggregation. Which should have occurred to me, but their very tight formation made me think something was scaring them.
