colorful studs

This open coral reef diorama in ¡Cuba! represents a string of jewel-like keys to the south of the main island of Cuba called the Gardens of the Queen (Jardines de la Reina). Here, silvery fish zip past banks of coral studded with colorful starfish, sea fans, and sponges. To protect this vital diversity, Cuba has created the largest marine reserve in the Caribbean. Coral reefs are some of the richest ecosystems on Earth, and on many Caribbean coastlines, they are in danger of disappearing. But in this protected area in Cuba, the reef is wonderfully alive. The diorama includes models of a hawksbill turtle, tiger shark, and spotted eagle ray. ©AMNH/M. Shanley

I Mean That Melanin Tho…
Going Hard Since ‘08.
My lovely college mate
turned girlfriend
turned fiancée turned wife.
Who would think nearly 10 years waking up to this creature of lure.
This madam of moisture.
This fcking beautiful hell bent bounty
of love
of nature.
My Muse.
