Check kimberlyltripp's Instagram Another tiny break from cephalopods... it's just been too long since I posted something from the big blue. And, with a name like Blue Water Images, I needed to rectify that! ;-) .
So, I went searching for a good shot to post and I just couldn't resist posting one of a blue whale. This is the first blue whale I had ever seen and we were incredibly fortunate to see more on the same trip. All sightings were from above water and at a short distance (100-300 yards) but we were able to identify them by their size, their dorsal fin, and the shape of their split blow hole. I remember the excitement resonating across the entire boat when they were first spotted... Many of us went for cameras and didn't even care about fully gearing up; just get out there and see them before they dive! We were in the arctic; it was cold but, it just didn't matter! And, the lighting was wonderful too with just a tiny bit of orange from the twilight of midnight sun!
.
The most interesting part is that we saw this guy "out of range" of their normal habitat. I believe there have been other sightings at the edge of the pack ice but in reviewing their details online (IUCN + Wikipedia) and trying to log our specific GPS coordinates on iNaturalist.com, I've found that our location was atypical. So, now I'm trying to get their "range" extended on iNaturalist (they often just wait the range extension is confirmed with multiple sightings). .
But, I'm so happy I started forcing myself to go back through photos, research the critters I've photographed, and log them on iNaturalist. It's incredible, even when I think I'm logging something that might be fairly straightforward, I've been delighted to learn something new and interesting. .

Check localoceantrust's Instagram Why post a picture of a rock? Because it's not a rock! This is a box crab! (Calappa sp., possibly C.  hepatica) If you have ever been snorkeling over sea grass or rubble areas, chances are that you have swam right past one of these little guys!

Box crabs are masters of camouflage and are hard to find. They are also known as "shame faced crabs" because they fold their claws in over their face to complete their disguise. 
These extraordinary crabs are just one of the thousands of species that benefit from turtle conservation. Since turtles need sea grass beds for food, protecting this habitat for the sake of turtles means that animals such as this box crab benefit. In this manner, sea turtles are "umbrella species" and this makes them highly effective flagship species for the wider conservation of the marine environment!

Check wildlondon's Instagram We are SO excited to hear @bbcearth announce that a new series of #BluePlanet is coming later this year! It will be narrated by #DavidAttenborough (President Emeritus of @thewildlifetrusts) and is intended to highlight recent scientific discoveries. The BBC's #naturalhistory unit spent four years filming off every continent and in every #ocean for #BluePlanet2, with support from #marine scientists. The seas around the UK are spectacularly biodiverse; colourful reefs, meadows of seagrass and other extraordinary habitats are home to many thousands of plants and animals, from tiny corals to the massive #baskingshark - the world's second largest fish! 💙
