Who cares about humpback whales, flying great white sharks, colorful pygmy seahorses they are sooo bourgeoisie. How about some exciting green water thrillers...

Ps: that is considered sarcasm, does not always translate on the net

I've just started to look at trying out BC diving to break the year-long gaps between Caribbean trips. I love small critters anyway and your pictures really make me wonder why I've waited so long. Great shots!

Very nice stuff, Martin! I especially like the little jelly (the first one), although if it were me, I'd black out the stringy thing alongside it -- that's really distracting, and detracts from the impact of the VERY cool jelly!
