The people I have met on the I SEE SEA adventure have been amazing.  While working the South Pompano area during the end of the summer, I encountered Ariane Dimitris.  However, having my hectic and crazy summer schedule didn't give me a chance to really study any of Ariane's work.  Recently Ariane shared some incredible photos with I SEE SEA, some of which will be posted to the South Pompano Wyndham and Beach Comber pages. I spoke to Ariane recently and she is very passionate about her work.  She has had several articles written about her and her discoveries.  She has been deemed "The Creature Queen" and "The Ultimate Nudibranch Finder” by  Nudibranchs, meaning “naked gills” consist of soft-bodied sea slugs and are members of the class Gastropoda in the phylum Mollusca. The majority of the colorful opisthobranchs that are seen belong to the suborder Nudibranchia (I had no idea; I had to look that one up).  Ariane is also working on a children's book, which will be a huge success if it's anything like her photos of the macro world. I had to do some research to get the whole nudibranch  and macro world of Ariane. It is definitely a mind-blowing experience!  Macro photography (or photomacrography or macrography, and sometimes macrophotography), is extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size (though macrophotography technically refers to the art of making very large photographs).  I personally just wanted to say thanks for the photos, I have been working that area for the past year and have been just grazing the surface.  Ariane's photos will definitely add to the splendor of this unknown area.
