Text Box: IntimaTE with a sea squirt
Recently I was filming, or videoing underwater on a picturesque reef in the Philippines and saw a Sea Squirt. I  swam closer and took a close-up video of the inside of this wonderful creature.
Darn right difficult.
What I thought would be an easy task with the video camera,
Text Box: turned out to be darn right tough to do. Even the smallest movement with the camera moved the object out of view. It took me a long time to steady myself, hold the video camera very, very still and let the tape roll…
Looking inside.
As I looked at the insides of the Sea Squirt, I got the strangest feeling. I felt like an intruder, invading this small creature’s most private space, looking at the inside of it’s body. 
Miniature tree trunks.
What I saw were delicate structures, shaped like miniature tree trunks supporting the outer skin. All working in harmony to give this little creature an existence.
I hope you enjoy the video as much as I do.
