  2. Have had a look around and I think this is a blue jellyfish - Cyanea lamarkii, and sea louse - Eurydice pulchra.
  3. Can anyone ID this jellyfish and its contents - Criccieth, N. Wales. Thanks
  4. Thanks Paul but I don't think I'll be taking photos to measure relative lengths of leg parts in order to ID - swimming crab will do for now! Mark

  20. Hallo Back in May 2009, Natural History Museum, New York, contacted me for a photo to use on front cover of the August edition of their magazine. We agreed fee etc and photo was subsequently used. However, I've not received payment despite many emails & letters. In fact I have had no response at all. The person I dealt with has since lost her job with the magazine but passed me details of the owner, Charles Harris - he has declined to answer my emails/letters. I have a friend who is a barrister so will be asking his advice as the next step in claiming the fee due. Mark
  21. Hi Adam Don't use Wetpixel much but couldn't resist when I saw your "cold water and sturgeon" forum! Like your photos, esp close ups - we've not been up for a couple of weeks, 4'C last time!! Must be warming up now!! Mark
  22. Hi Not tried feeding them yet!! but here's a couple of photos showing the mouth you describe Jack, taken in the same place. Mark
  23. Hi John I have one that I haven't used for a couple of years - used with my F90X. Now gone digital with YS110s. It's still in it's box with O rings etc, has a few scratches but in vg condition. Let me know if you're interested. I live in UK. Mark
  24. Thanks for the comments. I'm old and daft enough not to take criticism personally, but it seems unfair to slag off the judges. I have never understood how judges choose one image over another - each comp has its own criteria I suppose and photography is as subjective as any other art form. Don't know what the prize is yet Mark
  25. Thanks for the constructive criticism - a photo taken in a UK quarry coming first, hold the front page! Maybe the judges liked it because it was different. Ask them. For me, diving is a hobby. I have to do a day job to pay for it. Started entering comps last year as a bit of fun, so to be placed in a comp was a fantastic surprise. The BTS comp is for amateurs I believe so maybe the winning entries were chosen to reflect this. Shame we can't all reach the exalted standards of the Wetpixelers. No offence taken or intended by the way - life is too short. Mark
