What is that!

I have had a few people ask me what is that picture we use as our header image.

I was lucky enough to get a few pictures of this very shy chap whilst swimming not far from my house. These are some of my favorites from that day.

This is an Argonaut or more commonly known as a Nautilus. We sometimes find the shell on the beach also commonly known as a Paper Nautilus. This was the first and only time I have ever seen one alive. I managed to stay with him/her for some time till I was so cold I could no longer hold or focus the camera.

I reluctantly returned to the shore but I was lucky enough to get a few interesting pictures in the end. This event only adds to my mantra, you never know what you may find if you take the time to look.
