First of 4 digital artworks created for a WWF stamp issue for
Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique…sounds exotic, doesn’t it? So are these beautiful creatures. This picture shows them ‘migrating’ …a lobster ‘conga’ line!

    That’s a great creation. You’re so right about the conga line! (Then again, if they were eels, it’d be a “conger” line !!

    ‘Conger line’….We should start a double act! We’re pretty good!
    But seriously (if I must). Some of the ref shots I get from the WWF, especially the underwater ones, are just amazing…heck of a ‘job’ those guys have. How was it Dire Straits put it?
    ‘That ain’t workin’….money fer nothin’ and the chicks are free’…
    Yeah that’d be about right…
