Nemo dat Labrador

Went down to Labrador on Sunday for a look to see what might be still there.

Was happy to see a family of four wading around in booties exploring the shore. I went over to the wall of steel to see what was going on at that corner of the planet. It was all rubbish...literally....and loads of seaweed stuck on the fence. The sedimentation was really bad with huge areas covered in a sticky clay like mud.

As darkness fell, everyone left and I was alone on the beach. A 1.5m monitor made some noise as it scrambled up the landslide sheeting. The evening looked like a poor show until I came across this big colourful clown. It was a total surprise to see him so close to the shore.

Enjoy : )

Considering its size and colouration, I was wondering if it's not the usual Clownfish (Amphiprion ocellaris), but the Maroon Clownfish (Premnas biaculeatus). Which would be quite interesting, since I've never heard of Maroon Clownfish being sighted in local waters.
