    What is this?

    From Tennessee, having a great time diving BHB this week. Can anyone tell me what this is? It was all purple, then showed the brown area in the center, then returned to all purple... The best find of the day was about 25 squid!

    thanks!!

    You are one of the lucky few to see a Cowerie alive! Most people see the Cowerie shell, but never realize there is a live animal associated with the shell (brown stuff toward the top)...

    Actually, it looks very much like a bridge span in Jupiter I have been under... Looks like someone is attempting to get a spark from divers... more than supplying the actual place they are diving...

    We had nice viz yesterday at least before high tide--about 30 ft. The temperature was great too--82F! Maybe NOW I can lose the 3mil and 5 pounds of lead?? I saw a nice eagle ray and all the usual critters, Brenda tried to get my attention to shoot a batfish, but of course; I was head down watching a yellowheaded jawfish dance.................

    That's too bad Kev,
    I won't be able to catch up with you this visit.
    If I was the boss there wouldn't be such a long dry spell between dives.
    Have some great ones.

    Wow! I haven't seen a Cowrie in years. Turning Basin used used to be packed with them. Looks like an Atlantic Deer Cowrie.

    Question:

    Anybody do the REEF Photo BHB Workshop? I am thinking about attending the August event.

    Wade's Page has a lot of good info, but has not been updated for about 4 years. Do not use the tide info.

    Ok, where can I find info on tides? Was Wade saying you need to be in at high tide?
