What about the mundane ones?

Well-said, Denis! That's so true.

I have to admit when I go beachcombing or snorkeling, I usually prefer to photograph animals or plants that are rare, exotic, weird, colorful, big, funny, extraordinarily ugly, handicraft-like, dangerous, poisonous, or even not looking like living things, etc. I hardly photograph the ordinary ones, and if I do, I would usually just keep them for record, not for my little blog.

Yeah, what about the mundane ones? They certainly make up part of the ecosystem. And the mundane ones have stories to tell too. I can almost imagine them saying this into my face: Hey, we are marine life too, you know!

That's right, Chai - they "are marine life too."
Thanks for the cross-posting.
