Grand Cayman Island, 2002
Flamingo Tongue Snails are not uncommon to find while diving. You may see one or two on each dive. This trip to Grand Cayman was different. I saw thousands during the 10 day dive trip. Every sea fan or gorgonian had several snails on them! Models were everywhere, the hard part was figuring out which one take a picture of.
Part of the pattern you see on the snail is actually their skin wrapped around the outside of the shell and every snail is just a pit different in pattern and sometimes coloration. There is even a snail that is called the Fingerprint Snail for obvious reasons!

The image may be cropped to fit the print size that you want, but will keep the essance of the photograph seen above. If you would like to see what that looks like before purchase email firstname.lastname@example.org, and a proof will be sent to you through email.
11"x14" and 11"x17" come standard with a 1/2" natural wood wall float mount 16"x20" and larger sizes come standard with a 3/4" black wood wall float mount. If you are displaying prints outside or in a wet area mounts can be upgraded to to an aluminum wall float mount.
All prints come with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist that tells the backstory of the photograph. This should be kept with the print, and transfered with the print if sold.
Prints have a UV resistant coating. This makes them extremely durable and waterproof. They fair well outdoors, but will eventually fade with prolonged exposure to the sun.
