    All of these are from Basura, either the first or second dive on Sunday. This weekend was definitely a weekend for frogfish.

    Ish can now claim her first solo find of a frogfish:

    Moray (At least it didn't puke at me like the last one did):

    Puffer fish:

    This seahorse would always turn to face the camera, it could tell I was trying for a profile shot and just wouldn't give it, no matter how I positioned myself or the camera.

    Great dive site but especially so for photographers.

    Really? That's a puffer? Cool.
    Well, it more of less throw up at me rather than on me. I was at Sombrero and saw this eel and was watching it. I got a bit closer and it opened its mouth I got a bit closer and suddleny fish chunks were coming out toward me. This was a smaller one so I don't know if it's a defensive mechanism they use when small or if I just got "lucky".

    Finally got to a proper picture looking computer (aka the office). Definitely wow. I like the ribbon eel. Nice top side pictures too. Sorry to miss the Sunday dives. Friday and Saturday knocked me out :)
