I just saw something I found really funny that you, and possibly your friend in the Army might find funny. So Tumblr was giving me an ad for the Marines, and I decided to look at what people were saying. So the Marine in the picture has camouflage paint on his face... and people were offended at the use of 'blackface'....

Ooooh boy. Someone needs to explain to them what camouflage is…

A reef manta ray feeds along the coral reef drop off at D'Arros Island and St. Joseph Atoll, Seychelles. These are some of the most productive and intact waters in the entire archipelago and are the core of a recently proposed marine reserve. This picture is part of the photographic coverage for a forthcoming @natgeo magazine story on island restoration and conservation in the Seychelles. #seychelles @mantatrust @saveourseasfoundation
