I visited the seashore at La Valette during the night of June 10, 2007 to clean the pebble beach of litter left by the summer crowd. During my visit I saw several very fast moving house centipedes, Scutigera coleoptrata, running over and under the pebbles and cobbles on the beach. The centipedes on the pebble beach were too fast to photograph but I saw this individual on the concrete steps leading from the beach to the seawater bathing pools. His body was about 4 cm long and he remained still while I took a number of photos with a Canon digital camera.
Sealord photography's biodiversity images began with a focus on international commercial seafood species and the marine life of the Bailiwick of Guernsey, Great Britain.
Sealord photography has a growing collection of digital images covering climate change, the environment and sustainability issues.
Sealord photography also covers the Guernsey community and particularly the fund raising activities of Guernsey charities as part of the island's social sustainability.
The fish, shellfish and marine life images would not be possible if it were not for the generosity of commercial and recreational fishermen in Guernsey, and seafood suppliers at various trade shows in the USA, and wholesalers at Fulton Fish Market in New York City.
Many marine biologists have helped identify or confirm the identity of marine species photographed. These people have been mentioned when possible.
