Challenge has finished
Mention water life - and fish automatically comes to mind. Well, there’s more. In this Challenge we’ll be seeing other kinds of water animals… all except fishes! Brine divers might enjoy this one, since every sea-living organism bar grasses and algae, is an animal. One might wonder whether waterbirds of amphibious creatures might be included? No. These will have a special Challenge of their own later in the series. So keep a lookout, or comb your archives for non-fish animals; those that live in water 24/7. Show us some good photography!
PLEASE READ ALL THE RULES CAREFULLY. I hate having to disqualify a photo just because of an oversight...
