When This Diver Strikes A Sunken Shrine, A Truly Bizarre Friend Appears Out Of The Blue

Jumping into open water, a scuba diver can rarely know what they’ll find in the depths below. For most, that’s part of the pastime’s allure: they can explore new underwater landscapes and see how a diverse ecosystem works – and that experience will change with every dive.
