Mermaids Return to Atlanta
In an article found at Creative Loafing Atlanta, Andrew Alexander writes, "It just wouldn't be Christmas without mermaids." I would have to agree!
Each year, the Weeki Wachee mermaids of Florida make their way to Atlanta, Georgia to pay a visit to the Georgia Aquarium. It appears that tomorrow is the final day of the mermaid event.
If you miss the event in Atlanta this year, you can always catch the mermaids down at Weeki Wachee Springs.
In a story from Michael Zhang at Peta Pixel that was published a week ago, Australian photographer Darren Jew was said to have set a new world record by capturing nine whales in a single underwater photo.
"The 48-year-old shooter had previously captured images with up to 7 whales before creating this image."
Since the story appeared, folks have commented that there are shots out there with more than nine whales. Still, this is quite an accomplishment. Check out the photo and 2-minute slide show, then grab your underwater camera and dive in. There is a record at stake!
Best wishes and starfishes,
