    1. It is my brother behind the camera that is really good, Garfield. He is an exceptional underwater photographer. It is a shame, however, he has no interest in blogging or really showing his work. He is too busy living life to stop and blog. So I will try to keep showing his work here for everyone to view. I am so happy you enjoyed seeing his work today! Much love to you this day! 💖💕💖

    1. You are so welcome, Ben. After what I read what Rob… another follower… told me regarding some of the creatures my brother photographs plus the article he gave me to read, my admiration for my brother has gone up hugely! I don’t know if I would be that courageous getting that close to creatures that are extremely deadly. That blue ringed octopus can kill up to 26 humans with one bite. Wow! And I do agree with you regarding the colors. Truly spectacular and otherworldly! May you have a great day today! 💕💥💕

      1. Sorry to hear that Amy. I just saw that you re-followed me, but I am not sure about commenting . I really appreciate your intent, and thank you so much 🙂 Stay blessed and great

  1. Loved the photos! That mantis shrimp is also called a thumb splitter. They lance their prey with the impact of a .22 caliber bullet. They’ve been known to crack aquarium glass. That blue ringed octopus is one of the most poisonous/toxic marine creatures. It packs enough venom to kill 26 humans within minutes. Whoops! My marine aquaria nerdiness is starting to peek out. 😀

    1. Wow! My brother did tell me that the octopus and the sea snake are two of the deadliest creatures on this Earth. He really did not go into whole lot of detail and now I’m like standing here with goosebumps knowing that he was that close to something that deadly. Un-freaking believable! Daredevil? I would say so! Thank you, Rob, for filling in the blanks. My admiration for this man called my brother has gone up a few notches, believe you me! 👏👏👏💥

    1. I know, right? Wow is the understatement! My brother is in my opinion an exceptional photographer and what he did not tell me fully is how dangerous some of what he photographs is. If you have time go under my comments and read what Rob told me. My hair stood on end! 💕💥💕

      1. Sis, my amazement with Nature never stops. Larry and I have tentative plans down the road for me to learn how to dive and go with him on one of his shoots. I don’t know if I could ever afford the equipment needed to photograph as he does. But who knows what the future brings? We’ll see! 💕🥂💕

  2. Stunning and amazing and I love all of them, especially the sweet clown fish. Thank you so much for this wonderful post. Tell Larry thank you and I’m going to reblog it so more people can see his work. Hugs and I hope you are feeling a lot better. ❤

    1. Thank you, Gigi! I keep bugging my brother to start a blog but he just doesn’t seem interested. So many people would love to see what he photographs so I am making sure that I do a post of his work on my blog. My plan is once a month… And thank you for the reblog. More people really do need to see a world that most of us will never see! Much Love to you this day. 💕💖💕

    1. So it seems, Scott. My brother and I do have tentative plans to down the road of life to do something together. I am not sure at this point if I could ever do the underwater photography that he does, yet if I don’t at least try I will not know if I can. We’ll see what the future holds. For now, however, I am so enjoying viewing a world that not many of us will ever see through his eyes and his camera. Have a great day this day!

  3. Really amazing and stunning photos, dear Amy 🙂
    I don’t feel a need to meet those two dangerous animals so close, so thank you Larry for sharing with Amy. Then we get to see them in more safe mode.
    Much love to you ❤

    1. It really amazing to see what my brother does, Irene. I’m with you viewing these in safe mode rather than doing it in person. When I found out just how dangerous some of these creatures are that he photographs, my admiration for my brother went sky-high. Just wow! May you have a wonderful day today. Much Love from my Heart to yours, dear friend. 💕💖💕

      1. Not all problems, but some have. I can now see my bell on the blog and toggle between the blog and the reader. I used to have to have both open at once and toggle between tabs on my computer. That’s fixed, but the follow button is not, …yet visible.
        However, if one wants to follow now, they can go into their reader’s followed sites and enter thejobblog.net. It does show up this way. 🙂
        Have an awesome day as well! Thanks for the love. 😉

      2. I went over to see what you have and I’m speechless. I probably will not be commenting a lot, because it seems I have little to say. Just so much processing at the moment is unfolding …. your blog is just exactly what will assist me! THANK YOU! 🦋🦋🦋

  4. Thanks for sharing these Amy! Photography runs in the family! The clarity and color are astounding – not to mention how close he was! It’s cool to see things like this, to have the opportunity to see something I would never get to see. It’s like I’m there!!

    1. I know. Right? WOWOWOWOW is about the only word I can come up with to describe how I feel about these pictures. As I see wow after wow for my brother’s work, I ask myself how in the heck do I even dare post after this post? LOL I’m actually laughing … I don’t think I have ever gotten wow’s like he has today. And you know what? I’m happy for him! IMO he is an outstanding photographer who deserves recognition! Much Love to you! 💞

    1. I am blown away too, Holly. My brother is extremely talented and should be receiving a lot of recognition for his work. I have every intention of showing him how many admirers he has here today. He just doesn’t want to blog. *sigh* That man is so busy LIVING. Hope you are having a great day indeed today! Much Love! 💝

      1. I agree, Holly. I am hoping by showing him these comments (someone else said his work should be in a gallery) that the “germ” of an idea takes form and he begins displaying his work. His photography is outstanding!!

  6. Wow! Amazing pics…He is far braver than I….You wouldn’t catch me down there with sea snakes and the blue ringed octopus….Some of the colors and structures of these guys are unbelievable. I used to have a salt water fish tank years ago before I realized the cruelty of them and had clown fish. They are such happy, smiley, cuddly wonders. I see photography runs in the family. You both are amazing! Well done to your brother!!! Hugs… VK ❤

    1. No we don’t get to see this world much and when we do we sit there in complete bogglement. (I just made up a word … LOL) You are most welcome for this share. Between flying his own plane he built and his underwater photography, my brother is doing exactly as he wants. As it should be! He works darn hard for the life he does have. Much Love your way! 💝

Blogging is not for him, as he claims, while he is dancing all over this world. SO happy you enjoyed a view of a part of this world not many of us are privileged to see. Much Love to you! 💖

    1. I know, Eliza. Fantastic, yes? I also agree my brother is a real pro. He is simply so immersed in living about 6 lives in this one life that he has no “time” to get his work known. So I will show his pictures here in the future. Hope you are having a great day today! 😘
