By popular demand, Rich and Laura Howard are returning as Evening Tide Talk speakers, and this time they have a challenge for everyone. Pulling from their extensive portfolio of underwater images from around the world, they need everyone’s help in crowning the King of Camouflage. Life on the reef can be tough, as it can be an “eat or be eaten” world. That is…unless you can hide in plain sight! Test your skills in finding amazingly camouflaged sea creatures while also learning about the oceans’ ultimate masters of disguise as we determine who really is the king of camouflage.

Husband and wife team Rich and Laura Howard established Oceans of Images Photography in 1995 and have amassed thousands of underwater images and video from some of the world’s most beautiful oceans. Longtime Florida Aquarium members and contributors, the Howards’ work has been featured not only at The Florida Aquarium but also on broadcasts with National Geographic, the BBC, and advertising campaigns nationwide. Always entertaining, the Howards’ presentations are stocked with breathtaking imagery, fun marine life facts, and always a laugh or two.
