Fish in a Pyrosome
Part of my weekly adventure is to enjoy Black water diving. That is, diving at night in the Gulf Stream current, to photograph bizarre creatures rarely seen. I am truly amazed by the brilliant colors and odd animals that I find. Here we have a pyrosome-a group of free-floating colonial tunicates that live in the ocean in warmer waters. There is a synergy and symbiosis between animals in the ocean- here fish have found shelter in this tube like creature.
