Mike thats fantastic stuff ... it says "What it Feels Like" ... what does it feel like to dominate two months in a row ?

Having been naive when i dove over that part of the world last .. is the entire ball the anenome ? Whatever it is .. it looks great with the Gold fonts everywhere.

When does he have time to shoot, he's always on here?
Maybe the slow connection is the key to it. He types in an address or clicks on a link and has a dive while the page loads. Lovely image, one that is a fantastic example of not always having to be in your subject's face all the time. To me these are the most difficult images to get right, as the non-subject (the empty space ) is as important as the subject itself. Congrats.

Thanks guys

Actually the shot is from Palau. Yes, Giles, that is the magnificent anemone, they ball up like that in feeding mode. They come in a variety of different colours on the underbelly.

Darren: ;) actually i (usually) dive in the morning, then i spend the next 12 hours in front of the computer..... i have no social life.. you people are it... :blink:
