Hi Folks,

As you may already know from Mary Malloy's post the Giant Spider Crabs are massing again in Port Phillip Bay, Australia. After missing this amazing event since
I learned about it some years back I've been finally rewarded with witnessing it for myself. Below are my shots of it and a short unedited Video which helps show
just how grand a scale this is. Excuse the image quality as I'm a slave to the 60mm and very rarely get tempted to use my 10-17mm with the vis we usually have.


Cheers,
Jim.

Wow they look great.

I really like the first and the fourth.
Looks like you got the hang of the 10-17 pretty quick

Thanks Matt, though it's not my first time using that lens, it's just I've only done about a dozen dives with it and still feel like a Noobie with it.

Come on Andrew it's not that far to swim! Was hoping to dive this weekend but sitting in front of the fire might be the go. Brrrrrr!!!

Cheers,
Jim.
