    Merry suggested we try to get some wide angle shots of the hundreds of bubble snails under our dock. I wondered if they would leave once they finished mating and laying eggs. Most of them did leave, but there were several dozen left to give some perspective of what our typical dock dives are like.

    We had four feet of visibility as we jumped in at high tide. I used a 15mm fisheye lens which makes everything look farther away. I was within six inches of most of my subjects but the lens makes it look like we had great vis.
