Marine life could be like this in South West Florida, 3/3

This is the last of the current blog series on the possible life in the reefs of the future in South West Florida. The images show the night photographs using fluorescent illumination. Using this technique, the color of the coral otherwise unseen to human vision becomes apparent. With this technology the coral reefs appear to be bejeweled and on fire with color from every aspect of the rainbow. The formations shown here are only a small sample of a much larger chaotic jumble of shapes, sizes and colors.

Brain coral about 2.5 M in diameter
In daylight this would appear to be a muted brown color. This formation is about one meter in diameter.

I hope that you enjoyed the pictures. Please support the efforts to build coral reefs in the Gulf waters surrounding the SWFL.
