How nature finds mysterious ways to thrive! The clarion Angelfish is unique to the Socorro Islands, and possibly the only one known adult Angelfish in symbiotic relationship to the giant Pacific Manta Ray ! While the Manta gets cleaned from parasites and dead skin, the Clarion fish has a constant stream of oversized dinner carpets flying in! Nature is just perfect! #christianmiller_photo #ocean #underwater #manta #oceanview #discoverocean #angelfish #scuba #fortheoceans #socorro #mexico
How about we all skip the seafood this Christmas so the Turtles can have it all 😉#christianmiller_photo #love #ocean #seaturtle #underwater #greatbarrierreef #thisisqueensland #turtle #saveourseaturtles #discoverocean #oceanview
So beautiful to watch the ‘little’ blue whale gently sliding from one side of its Mum to the other ! One of the many visual bonuses you get to see during a non invasive #snotbot expedition! Counting the minutes to the next one 🐳 #christianmiller_photo #ocean #underwater #oceanview #discoverocean #bluewhale #parleyxsnotbot #mexico #natgeo #baja #whale
We Welcome to the world our little girl Naia (which is Hawaiian meaning Dolphin) ! #christianmiller_photo #love
The Flatback Turtle can only be found around the Australian continental shelf ! They have the most beautiful crazy eyes ❤️#christianmiller_photo #ocean #underwater #fortheoceans #discoverocean #turtle #seaturtle #greatbarrierreef #thisisqueensland
Crazy to think that not long ago whales were killed to serve us as candle lights ! I find it hard to wrap my head around the fact that no one even had the thought that this is totally screwed up ? One swim with these majestic animals, one listen to their songs might have changed peoples perspectives ! Anyway, that was the past ... let’s hope we learned from it! #christianmiller_photo #ocean #discoverocean #fortheoceans #underwater #whale #humpback #oceanview #redhelium8k
That’s what they call a whale shark in all these different languages: “Whale Shark” in English “Chagrin” in French “Jinbei Zame” in Japanese “Dimero” in Spanish “Rekin Wielorybi” in Polish “Rauhhai” in German “Thimingal Sura” in Tamil “Tubario Baleia” in Portuguese “Yu Paus” in Malay “Walvishaai” in Afrikaans. You might need this one day 😊#christianmiller_photo #ocean #scubadiving #underwater #fortheoceans #discoverocean #oceanview #whaleshark #shark #philippines #caphorn #redhelium8k
I love these moments when you sit on the boat in complete wilderness, scanning the surface of the ocean, listening to blows of the humpback whale, reflecting of the mountains around us! Sometimes we could hear the feeding calls through the aluminium hull of our boat, going all the way through your body! Then you see bubbles forming a perfect circle, just moments before maybe 5, maybe 15 whales with their mouths wide open lunging meters out of the water! Every time they are in the exact same order, as every whale has its place in this collaborative feeding frenzy! Nature is full of unbelievable moments! 🐳 #christianmiller_photo #ocean #fortheoceans #discoverocean #oceanview #snotbot #parleyxsnotbot #whale #humpbackwhale #alaska #alaskawhalefoundation
If we could read a Turtles mind ... what would they say about the changes of our Reefs ? #christianmiller_photo #ocean #scubadiving #underwater #fortheoceans #discoverocean #turtle #seaturtle #greatbarrierreef #thisisqueensland #tropicalfnq
Remembering my first encounter with a whale shark ! I was shouting an entire dictionary of swear words 😳#christianmiller_photo #ocean #scubadiving #fortheoceans #discoverocean #oceanview #shark #whaleshark #underwater #redhelium8k
I love this perspective, you can see so much more of the whales behaviour ! In this picture for example, you can see their flukes spread out like wings ... that’s the moment before they dive! This makes the whole Snotbot non invasive sample collection so much more valuable, but also easier as you can predict the whales movements ! 🤘🐳😁 #christianmiller_photo #ocean #fortheoceans #discoverocean #snotbot #parleyxsnotbot #alaska #natgeo #whale #humpback #alaskawhalefoundation
Getting stalked by a Manta ray ... that’s totally ok 😳#christianmiller_photo #ocean #fortheoceans #oceanview #discoverocean #scubadiving #socorro #underwater #manta
You deserve 30 seconds of paradise! 🌴🌊#christianmiller_photo #fortheoceans #ocean #paradise #beach #maldives
Seaturtles are getting trapped in disregarded fishing gear in all our Oceans every day! This is not acceptable! You get a fine for parking or a late tax bill payment, but it seems ok to use the Oceans as dump! Aren’t we strange ? #christianmiller_photo #snotbot #parleyxsnotbot #turtle #seaturtle #saveourseaturtles #ocean #rescue #mexico
The amount of skills and art of creating these bubble nets to trap krill or herring is unbelievable! #christianmiller_photo #snotbot #parleyxsnotbot #ocean #fortheoceans #oceanview #discoverocean #alaskawhalefoundation #alaska #humbpackwhale
Why do animals eat so much plastic? First, many, like sea turtles are ‘opportunistic’ eaters, especially when times are hard, they eat what they can! Feeding grounds are getting reduced due to fishing, environmental pressure or water quality! Second, there was no other time in history where anything the Ocean would give, wasn’t classified as food! Marine animals or sea birds could simply ‘trust’ the Ocean ! There was never a reason to doubt that anything would exist causing such harm from eating it! It was us to break this trust, we have tricked all living creatures. One invention, selfishly disposed into the Oceans, choking what once gave us life ! I think we now have to proof that we are worth it to exist! We love life, we love nature, and certainly love ourselves so much, there is no doubt that we can do this! Now that was deep, I apologise 😏 Not 🐳 #christianmiller_photo #ocean #discoverocean #thisisqueensland #greatbarrierreef #fortheoceans #seaturtle #turtle
