As promised here is a gallery of some of my favorite Cape Gannet photographs shot on Mercury Island off the coast of Namibia. This small gannet colony might not be the largest in the world, but its’ setting, with the imposing Namib desert as a backdrop is second to none. Namibia... you never cease to amaze me and that’s why I have been coming back again and again to this unique African country for almost 20 years. I would love to know which of these four images is your favorite. #onassignment @natgeo

A Jellyfish carries a heavy load of brittlestar (relatives of sea stars) hitchhikers in the Mozambique Channel. As solo artists I have photographed both jellyfish and brittlestars many times, but I have only seen this unique double act once. It appears that these freeloaders not only hitch a ride, but also actively ‘steal’ planktonic food scraps from right underneath the jellyfish’s tentacles. How do you think these seabed/coral reef dwelling brittlestars actually get into/onto these pelagic drifting jellyfish? Please leave your ideas/theories in the comments. I will post what I think is the most likely scenario in next few hours. Unpublished photograph from my 2014 @natgeo magazine story "A tale of two Atolls "

I want to conclude my weeklong focus on Namibia’s Mercury Island, with a gallery of some of my favorite African penguin pictures from my time on this remote seabird hotspot. Despite the islands diminutive size (3ha), it supports the largest African Penguin breeding colony in Namibia, with more than 15,000 individuals. Penguin numbers are declining all across the Benguela large marine ecosystem, but this population appears more stable than the others. @natgeo
