Partridge Point, False Bay, Cape Town, South Africa
We were diving alongside a small seal colony, looking for basket stars, aware that that seals are a food source for the significant local Great White population. Needless to say, the ‘eyes at the back of my head’ were running on full power. Basket stars are found deeper than one would normally dive on that reef. As we descended through the low visibility green ‘pea soup’ we were very lucky to almost land right on top of this magnificent specimen.

قُمنا بالغوص بجانب مجموعةٍ من الفقمات للبحث عن نجوم السلّة، وكنّا ندرك بأنّ الفقمات تشكّل مصدر الغذاء الأساسي للقرش الأبيض الكبير. ولهذا السبب، كنّا على أعلى درجات الاستعداد والترقّب. تعيش نجوم السلّة على عمقٍ أكبر من ذاك الذي يصل إليه الغوّاصون في العادة. وقد حالفنا الحظ خلال انحدارنا في المياه الخضراء الداكنة بالوصول إلى مقربةٍ كبيرة من أحد هذه الحيوانات الرائعة.
