I still have four sets of photos to share from my recent trip to Zante, Greece, as part of my its all Greek to me series. I promised you some underwater wildlife in my last post. So this is a collection of fish I managed to photograph while snorkeling. Once I get through these photos it will be back to beaches and bulldogs as normal.
These fish species definitely are all Greek to me, but luckily I have borrowed Bridgend Countryside Management Officer Rob Jones’ Mediterranean Species Guide which tells me above are Saddled Seabream. I photographed some of us humans too. #UnderwaterSelfie
Lewis had an underwater selfie stick, what is the world coming to?
Anyway, back to the wildlife. Quite a shoal here.
Off they go…
…they must have seen Lewis…
…or me! Quite impression of the Nirvana Nevermind Baby.
But don’t worry there are plenty more fish in the sea, this time baby Barracuda by the surface.
This is a black-tailed Wrasse I think.
Great clear shot of a Saddled Seabream.
Quite happy in the diffused sea sunlight.
Some sort of Wrasse below.
Any identification help will be welcomed.
A small Hermit Crab coming out to say hello.
A black tailed something, again it is all Greek to me.
This guy is a bit more distinctive, a striped Seabream I think.
Oh and a lesser spotted Lewis!
So that is what we saw in the sea. A few days later we found a reef and my next post will be what we saw there, and I promise you some even more interesting species, DimExcuses.
