Spiny Lobster Living with Anemone

I was desperate to dive the Christ of the Abyss Key Largo, FL site. I love the ocean & want to share it with the world. Bad weather had just passed through, the water was rough, and visibility wasn't as good as it normally is. I also just got a new camera and underwater housing. I wanted desperately to leave with beautiful photos of wildlife from the natural park and after taking a few hundred photos got this one. It was the opening of lobster season, so I thought it was fitting. Many people would probably try to take the lobsters they found, but not me. I think that's what a sustainable travel project is. Protecting and appreciating the wildlife for generations to come and showing the world why we need to save our oceans.
