A school of mackerel is appealing.
Then four large mantas
make their presence known.
A barracuda! The suspense kills us,
until a nurse shark is noticed gliding near the bottom.
Enthusiasm mounts!
For a turtle.
A crab!
On a rock!
Was never so exciting. It grabs little bits of
floating stuff. But now we see the cuttlefish
poised above it. The cuttlefish, we know,
is capable of putting on quite a show.
Which would be top billing, except this octopus
may be just about to squirt a serious jet, of black ink.
What do you think it knows?
That we donít?
Surely something?
Life on mars? Maybe?
Oh wait, thatís next hour.
