Really nice set. I know how challenging it is out there. Were you liveaboard based? If you were, what was the diving at The Arch, and Wolf like. Did you get to witness any big schools of Hammers? The turtle shot is spot on.
Thanks Stew. I was on the Darwin Buddy liveaboard, and it was an excellent boat. The crew was great, and the food was surpisingly good. The diving around Wolf and Darwin was wonderful. That's where most of the hammerheads were, as well as large numbers of eagle rays and Galapagos sharks. There were lots of hammerhead sharks, but we only saw large schools a couple of times. The water and air temperatures were colder than usual for this time of year, and that might have affected the shark count somewhat.
I have never done a trip like this before, and I really enjoyed it. I plan on repeating the trip when I can.
Thanks guys. I agree with you on the fairy basslets. There were so many on this trip that I made it a point to try a get a few shots just for the challenge of it.
Here is one that surprised me, because I did not realize that I was getting a shot of its teeth when I took the snap.(To me more honest, I did not realize that they had teeth until I looked at the pic.)
