LADIES` NIGHT .. ANDI F

 hermit DSCN2585
Hi, my name is Andrea Finglespritz, & as you can see, I`m having a bad hair day. The sky is not blue, the result of a Yellow Tang, swimming right behind me. I`m mired in this brown stuff underfoot, which I can only guess at it`s origin. Hey there, whoa Andrea. That`s a nice fish behind you. It`ll be gone soon, & that brown crap, is really interesting.
I saw it at the bottom of a display tank at a fish store & I knew it promised to become the swan to the ugly duckling.
I had one of the store workers throw it in a bag along with a few snails.
At the time it was only a piece of rock with a brown encrusting spot on it.
I put it in my reef & it soon began to grow , eventually encrusting the whole rock
Within two years it started growing knobs out of the brown covering & they started to grow into branches.
After three years it is a prized coral, with purple & green tips from which protrude the polyps of the coral colony.
Everything turned out perfectly.

Amazing -- it looks so much like me, it's almost a portrait, except that I've solved my bad hair days by keeping my hair much shorter. ;)

Morning Head, Andi.

LOL Andi! That was funny ...

I thought the hair was quite short as it is ... :D

(giggling at what Andi said)

Do you LIVE with these creatures, knucklehead? You can see a red like that anytime you want?

Nancy P said...

I'm starting to think that knucklehead IS a fish,katiebird. I don't know how he clicks the shutter on the camera.

Andrea`s hair is much shorter, She had been tearing it out , because she was frazzled. She`s much betta now.
Have a great day Andi f.

Good Morning to you also Olivia.. Night Cerus coming up soon.

Knucklehead said...

Katiebird,
Yes Katieb, These friends live in a series of tanks I have in three locations at my place. I`m pretty much always attuned to the possibility of seeing something unusual, so I`ve have cameras ready.
And yes, I was sort of laughing too.

When my hair goes astray such as this I say I'm having a Nick Nolte day!

olivia said...

Can't wait!

olivia said...

LOL NDD.

Knucklehead said...

Olivia,
this will take you to 4 more images. One is a 4 second exposure@ 2.8 that I washed with a flashlight for a sec or two.
I move the flashlight as if i`m spraying water on it.
MOONLIGHT CERUS

Knucklehead said...

NDD,
I was the first one on scene at the Nolte arrest. More later. I must go back to a horizontal position.
My headache [ one of the best I`ve ever had] is causing pressure on my eye & moving it so my binocular vision is tweaked. That in turn gives the headache encouragement to be even better.

I`m not a fish, but I`ve played one on TV.

Nancy P said...

lol,kh, and a very fine fish you were, too, I'm sure.

I'm so sorry about your head today, head. You and family man are both having bad head days.

Be well.

NDD said...

re: moonlight cerus

that technique highlight it well, I'll have to think of a subject to try that on

good luck with the head... replacements are difficult to find

Knucklehead said...

NDD,
I`m up & about for a little bit.
I should have included more examples of the exposures with the flashlight. I also used that technique in the bronze I used in the "Dichotomy" post.I should also mention that the header photo, links to images taken from the top of one of my reefs, giving a different perspective on what the reef looks like. And to Andif, you do not have to watch a slideshow but can browse through the images one by one, as per NDD`s suggestion.
My eyes don`t work very well in conjunction right now so it`s hard to follow my finger hitting the notes .
As for the Canadian destination, one must always put it`s good qualities in order of priority, the first being, who you know, especially if that person loves hockey. Shame on some of you for not mentioning Olivia. Other than that you`re all good to go.

Looking good, Andi.

I`m very glad I got your honest opinion, as I`ve never seen her in person. I was hoping it would do her justice. I`m now relieved to find out from you that it shows her looking good.
Thanks

Tony,

Your latest photo is absolute proof that we, (humankind), have evolved throughout generations. There is no doubt in my mind that your latest posted photo is a close relative of Don King...

TATU,
Just not as crabby.
