Foto Finish Water

Today's optional theme for Foto Finish over at Cat Patches is water. 
Really? water? I live on an island, then again we are being visited by a storm, so maybe dramatic pictures of that, which way to go?
How about down.

Pretty isn't he? That's a lion fish and they are big news down here. There are different theories on how they got here, but mostly it's people dumping them out of aquariums and now they are taking over our reefs. They have a nasty sting and surprise, the divers and snorkelers don't like that. So now we have lion fish derbys, divers go out and capture as many as they can and win prizes, yea. Oh, and they are giving us recipes hoping we'll eat them. LOL, Pass. 

Now I hope you'll go over to Cat Patches and join in the fun.

Thanks for stopping by,


  1. Oh yes, I know all about the lion fish problem. I read a while back the folks are trying to come up with ways to prepare them for eating. That would help, but I haven't read much more about it. Around here it's a fresh water mussel. They've been found in Idaho. I figure it's only a matter of Zebra mussels in the Great Lakes.

  2. Those are scary to think about. People never think about the problems they can induce, do they.

  3. I hope a solution is found to the lion fish problem, but I am not to anxious to try eating them!

  4. Thanks for sharing such interesting and informative information! I didn't know this. They are beautiful to look at....obviously from a distance.

  5. those are pretty! but yikes, I don't want to be near one!
