Another thing I noticed was all the different small organisms in the water and how they all seemed to cluster and live around each other. There were different types of aquatic weeds with a bubbly mold-looking substance and particles of Cyanobacteria intermixed with it.
Another interesting site that day was the albatross flying around. This flying boat was being used for the filming of a Bollywood action flick where the final scene involves a world champion water skier using a grappling hook to barefoot water ski behind the giant plane. Unfortunately, the water skier is going to be added in digitally, so I didn't get to actually see anyone trying to carry out this stunt.
