After diving the great jetty, much like Evolution suggests, we crawled out of the water and found a beautiful place. Here, one of the residents is getting the boat ready for tomorrow.

Hairy frogfish shaking its esca (lure).

Since somewhere along the way the metadata is getting stripped, here’s “hand made EXIF.” All of these shots are with Olympus OM-D EM-5 with the 12-50mm lens in macro mode (at 43mm) in a Nauticam housing. One Sea & Sea YS-100alpha strobe.

There were a *lot* of frogfish out and about. Here’s one with his esca (the lure he uses) out.  He shakes it around and other fish really do come over and check it out.  I saw one almost, but sadly for the frogfish, only almost, become dinner.

I’m a big fan of sharks. I used to like to eat them. But these days I’m a lot more worried about their survival, so no more eating them. Now, I prefer to dive with them. Anyhow, we were recently in Destin, Florida — “The world’s luckiest fishing village”. Sadly, it wasn’t really living up to its billing for us. We caught a red snapper that would have been tasty, but it was out of season and had to go back. And we caught this small black tip shark. It also went back, and I hope on to great things.
