Anyone for thermidor?

When I'm diving I try not to think about seafood but sometimes I get a subconcious urge for some melted butter!


Spiny lobsters like this one are protected from being taken by SCUBA divers in the Bahamas (but not from free-divers) and quite rightly so. This means that on some of the deeper sites you can find lots of them and they're not too concerned by divers. I took this chance to try to get a close up showing the beautiful eyes and little horns of these crustaceans.

Lovely close-up! The colors in the photo look almost iridescent.

Beautiful colours and such clear photos. I've never realized how beautiful spiny lobsters can be. Wonderful close-up!
