CLOSE ENCOUNTERS WITH MARINE LIFE

NIGEL MARSH    Book Number: 87060    Product format: Paperback

Oh but they're weird and they're wonderful! Striped and brightly coloured like Nemo, graceful and magnetic like Manta Rays, mucus suckers like the Convict Blenny burrowing in sand or coral, a prehistoric encounter with a Shark Ray, the cutest and strangest member of the sea snake the Turtle-Headed Sea Snake who is an egg thief, the alien jaws of the Moray Eel, good parenting from the Damsel Fish and the curious and friendly Grub Fish, the strange-looking Scorpion Fish called Chicken Little and the amazing Mimic Octopus found in the Indo-West Pacific. The most cryptic of all sea creatures must be the octopus. They are able to change their skin colour and texture to match their surroundings in a perfect camouflage and their family contains more than 300 species varying greatly in size and appearance. Sea horses, sea shrimps, here are dainty Cardinalfish to the ear wax cleaning Wrasse and the fluorescent striped Rock Shrimp. Hundreds of species have been caught by a telephoto lens in this exceptional book of wildlife photography. Rarely does a photographer get so close to the subject and underwater photography demands just this to capture great images. Fortunately, most marine animals are happy to go about their swimmy lives with a diver looking on. Nigel Marsh has been photographing his close encounters for more than 40 years, seeing octopus mating, sharks feeding, fish fighting, seals showing off and many other incredible sights. 264pp, index, full page colour photos, softback.
