.Thick looking dawn this morning. Must be Sahara dust, and/or volcano dust from our neighbor to the southeast, Montserrat. St Croix is not the place to live if you have lung troubles! The weather is still coming in from the wrong direction.
.OK, what's this? Some sort of plant, I don't have a decent plant ID book. There are more plants in sandy areas than on the coral reef. This is in about fifty feet depth, 27m.
This one is a real cutie! Only about an inch tall, 2.4 cm. I didn't get a very decent image of the details, did I? Phooey.
.It's sending out runners. It must bloom , but I didn't see any big red or yellow blossoms. Haha, I'm being silly, sea plants have very tiny green flowers, for the most part. The fish would gobble them down before they could go to seed.
I did happen to see one flower on that two hour snorkel the other day, in all that Turtle Grass. Once again, my photogrphy skills are in a sad state, but you get the idea. Not a very dramatic flower, hey? Oh, yes, a Turtle Grass flower.
OK, off to my day! Thanks for stopping by!
