The critters you find here are amazing. Michael O'Neil tells me that it is because the Gulf Stream comes so close to here, and Caribbean critters blow in here when they are in their larval stages.

It's funny to dive with all these great animals, dodging fishing hooks and the trash that sits under the bridge.

Let's get this out of the way, first:

And now, some images (Canon 1Ds, 100mm USM Macro lens, dual Ike DS-125 strobes with diffuser)

Tell me that's a loaner... please :D

Lovely shots there Eric, presumably taken with the 1Ds. Very very nice.
Why would I take a perfectly good camera underwater??

You know what they say about a man with big camera equipment don't you!

Superb shots.

Hey! This housing is smaller than my last one, I think. :D

According to photo.net, it's people with really nice SLR bodies and Tamron 28-300mm lenses that uh.. you know. :)

Dood, all right! Time to edit your signature now Eric.

I like the "pearlescent" look on the worm. Nice!

Hey!.. Aren't you supposed to be working? :D

Beautiful colors on those shots, Eric. Now.. where is it? I see you photographed the Bobbit worm thingy, which isn't too far from the Yellow Seahorse. So cough it up.. give me another reason to go DSLR. :)

If I call in sick to work any more they're going to quarantine my cubicle with me in it. Wish I could join you guys.. I know you must be having a blast... Jimmy calls me at work to make sure I know all about it. &$(*$#@ :)

That seahorse is quite shy. All my photographs of the little guy are pretty much at the same angle.

So finally you did it :( - and finally I know the reason why you think
about selling one of your cars. Tell me: Did you also buy the 45 degree
viewfinder? How many ports do you own for the Seacam now?

Yes -- I opted for the S45 viewfinder. I have the superdome, WA port, and P90 macro port, with assorted extenders for various lenses.
