Harbor seals are usually

Harbor seals are usually very quiet and shy. It took me almost 40 minutes to get this close without interrupting them or spooking them away. But I was being watched the whole time They might be clumsy on land, but they are powerful and amazing swimmers. They can even sleep under the water.Seals dive for three minutes at a time typically, but they can stay under water as long as 30 minutes and dive as deep as 600 feet.Unlike humans, harbor seals breathe out before diving. They use oxygen already in their blood and muscles while under water, and their heartbeat slows from about 100 beats per minute to 10..... #harborseal #seals #marinelife #mammal #oceanlove #oceanfacts #oceanconservation #marinescience #freediving #sciencefun #protectmarinelife #canon7dmarkii #canonusa #blueplanet #environmentalist #lostcoast #pacificocean #keepitwild #lovenature

Cue happy dance. I just c

Cue happy dance. I just confirmed another trip to one of my absolute favorite places on the planet, #Niue. Niue is the country that borders the Cook Islands to the west. The #island itself is four times the size of Rarotonga, but with only 10% of the number of people (about 1,600) that are in the Cooks! It's a raised coral #atoll, which means that there are very few beaches, but incredibly unique limestone caves - and coastal views like this. This will be my 5th or 6th trip there working on a marine conservation project with a team of rockstars from Tofia Niue, Government of Niue, Oceans 5, and @natgeopristineseas. Even though I've visited the island several times, I still feel giddy when I book another trip.

March of the crabs! I've

March of the crabs! I've always loved the colours and life in this picture. I added it to Instagram before, but in my unfamiliarity with how things work I posted it incorrectly. This is it in its entirety.

Cuckoo Wrasse are so incredibly curious, particularly at St John's Point. They quite often become your buddy for the dive, spending a considerable amount of time admiring their reflection in your mask #scubadiving #scuba #diving #divebuddy #buddy #diveireland #stjohnspoint #donegal #ireland #discoverireland #coldwaterdiving #coldwaterjunkie #uwphotos #underwater #underwaterphotography #marinelife #marinebiology #marinescience #wrasse #cuckoowrasse #cuckoo #fish #anemone #jewelanemone #greenwater #ikelite #protectwhatyoulove #HollisGear #suuntodive #neverstopexploring

Gun on the bow of the P29 in Malta. The P29 was deliberately sunk to create an artificial reef and is an easily accessible shore dive. The gun was added later, probably for photo opportunities #scubadiving #scuba #diving #shorediving #wreck #wreckdive #wreckdiving #gun #divemalta #malta #seamalta #unlimitedmalta #visitmalta #uwphotos #underwaterphotography #underwater #artificialreef #reef #marinelife #marinebiology #marinescience #ikelite #coldwaterjunkie #neverstopexploring #suuntodive #girlsthatscuba #p29

A mixture of life, not all of which I can name. Massmount in Donegal is a good shore dive for spotting squirts, long legged spider crabs, shredded carrot sponge and Thornback rays. #scubadiving #scuba #diving #coldwaterjunkie #coldwaterdiving #diveireland #massmount #mulroybay #donegal #ireland #discoverireland #uwphotos #underwaterphotography #underwater #marinelife #marinebiology #marinescience #seasquirt #spinystarfish #starfish #seastar #sponges #ikelite #neverstopexploring #suuntodive #girlsthatscuba

Happy hump day! Time for another #AcroporaAugust! Acroporoids have two different methods for feeding. During the day, corals receive nutrients from photosynthetic microscopic algae that live inside of them, called zooxanthellae. However, during the night, each individual polyp extends their tentacles and actually use stinging cells called nematocysts (like those in jellyfish!) to stun and capture tiny little zooplankton in the water column. #coralreefs #oceanconservation #coralrestoration #marinescience #Acropora #oceanoptimism #coral

Sometimes living in an island community taught us the values of cooperation, tolerance & many more.. being exposed to harsh tropical jungle conditions with blazing heat of the day, constant downpour every night & a violent storm during our last night here.. what matters most were the experience, the thing we learned & the datas we collect.. damn those are valuables.. Thanks to the ones who gave all their commitment in making this fieldwork a memorable one... masing2 muka burned af #mariners #fieldwork #bidong #island #marinescience #UMTians #UMT #terengganu #asia #malaysia

Honey, Im Home A Marine with Black Sea Rotational Force 17.1 embraces his loved one during a homecoming in Camp Lejeune, N.C., Aug. 20, 2017. The event concluded an eight-month deployment to the Black Sea region as the Marines returned better trained and equipped to fight our countries battles. (U.S. Marine Corps photo by Cpl. Sean J.

Pink maerl rhodoliths, Lo

Pink maerl rhodoliths, Loch Sween. Maerl is a type of algae which builds a skeleton of calcium carbonate, in much the same way as a coral reef. Indeed, maerl beds perform some of the same functions as coral reefs, though in a temperate environment. Their complex structure provides nursery and shelter for other species. Here, an army of green brittle stars can be seen living within the niche generated by the maerl bed. #lochsween #maerl #coralline #corallinealgea #diving #ocean #brittlestar #diving #marinebiology #underwaterphotography #marinescience @samsmarinescience

The bearded fireworm. Quite common in the waters around Malta, these marine bristleworms can grow up to 30cm in length and look amazing. Don't touch them though, their bristles pack quite a punch. #scubadiving #scuba #diving #divemalta #cirkewwa #malta #seamalta #unlimitedmalta #visitmalta #coldwaterjunkie #uwphotos #underwater #underwaterphotography #marinelife #marinebiology #marinescience #beardedfireworm #fireworm #worm #sting #ikelite #mediterranean #meditarraneansea #protectwhatyoulove #girlsthatscuba

An extract on #marinescience

Following the Austrian defeat at Austerlitz in 1805, Salzburg was annexed by Austria as compensation for the loss of Tyrol to the Kingdom of Bavaria, and Ferdinand was transferred to the Grand Duchy of Wrzburg.

In 1938, after a triumphant entry into Austria, Austrian-born Adolf Hitler spoke to the Austrian Germans from the balcony of the Neue Burg, a part of the Hofburg at the Heldenplatz. Viennese Jews were looted and deported. Between 1938 (after the Anschluss) and the end of the Second World War, Vienna lost its status as a capital to Berlin as Austria ceased to exist and became a part of Nazi Germany. It was not until 1955 that Austria regained full sovereignty. On 2 April 1945, the Soviets launched the Vienna Offensive against the Germans holding the city and besieged it. British and American air raids and artillery duels between the SS and Wehrmacht and the Red Army crippled infrastructure, such as tram services and water and power distribution, and destroyed or damaged thousands of public and private buildings. Vienna fell eleven days later. Austria was separated from Germany, and Vienna was restored as the republic's capital city, but the Soviet hold on the city remained until 1955.
