Reasons for being abandoned occasionally

So I thought I’d update you on why I am abandoned sometimes by my ma and da.

And pictures tell a better story, don’t they?

So here are some taken by my da, who's a really really really really really really good photographer.

First up, here's a beautiful leafy sea dragon. They're quite difficult to spot in the water.

you only think you see me, you don't really, you're imagining things.

This is actually the official marine emblem of South Australia. People come from all over the world to find and photograph these absolutely gorgeous creatures. This Phycodurus eques was photographed at a really nice place called Edithburgh on the Yorke Peninsula.

Can anyone guess what these are?

my name is nemo, no, my name is nemo, no, that's my name, okay so we're all called nemo

Okay I’ll tell you. Baby Nemos. Yep, baby clownfish. In Papua New Guinea, where my ma and da went on a diving holiday last September (abandoning me in the process).

Here's a broadclub cuttlefish at 30m (that's 98 feet for my imperial pals), also in Papua New Guinea.

What garden eel backdrop? I'm the star. Focus on ME, please.

Sepia latimanus is the second largest cuttlefish species. Also, see the sea grass in the background? Sea grass at 30m? Nope, in fact it was a bunch of garden eels.

And here we have Homo sapiens extraordinarious, aka my ma. Hee hee hee.

hello, my name is Tin Tin's ma, what's yours?

And because this is my blog, here’s me.

don't you forget about me, I'll be around, dancin' you know it baby - but don't call me a SIMPLE MIND.

Simba said...

What great photos. The one of you is the best.

wally said...

WOW! Cool pictures. But I still don't think that justifies the abandonment. You should demand fish for dinner for the next week. No seaweed (unless you like it, as I happen to.)

Dachsies Rule said...

No reason justifies abandonment ... except MAYBE going to buy more treats.

Your mom sure has big feetsies.

Hey Tin Tin,
Mama thinks it would be so cool to see fishies under the water like that. She thinks the sea dragon is really cool. She wondered what the baby Nemo's were attached to while they are still eggs?? Do you know?
When Mama first started with aquariums, she really wanted to do saltwater & have some Nemo's, hehehehe! But she ended up going regular water & raising African Cichlids. The photo of you is very cute!!!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Hi Tin Tin,
THOSE are Nemos????! And look at the size of that cuttlefish! The only cuttlefish that I have seen are drid ones.. and they don't smell too nice..
That's a real cute pic of you at the end!

PerfectTosca said...

Tin Tin you were the best looking one in those pictures. Ooooooo I'd love to scruff that cuttlefish and just shake it reallllllllly hard.

You're lucky yer Da is such a great photographer. My Woman is photgraphically challenged, which is really a sin considering she has a Perfect Dog as a subject.

Oscar Airedale said...

Wow, what great photos. One of mum's colleagues does lots of diving & mum LOVES looking at their photos & videos.

But of course the best photo is of you!

Your da sure takes really nice pictures when he goes under the water! My hoomans go under water like that sometimes too, but even though they gave me a scuba-inspired name, i won't go into the water with them. It's too cold!

I hope that your hoomans brought you lots of yummy treats when they came home!

Dory and Liza said...

Wow Tin Tin -

Those are lovely photos. My dad scuba dives but all he does (according to my mom) is bring up junk and lobsters!!

Have a happy day!

It is great to observe somebody put enough craze towards a matter. I'm thankful that I stumbled upon this process. I am lucky I used the time to read on past the 1st paragraph. You have got a whole lot to say, very much to offer. I really hope guys understand this and look into our page.
