started out.. with 1000s of baby red-toothed trigger (the small light blues ones) and a few of their parents (the larger dark blue ones).

we were on the outside of the atoll, with approximately 30 metre visibility.

and to finish off at the end

a squadron of 12 eagle rays...
they were at 40m and i did the no-no of leaving my depth of 15 and shooting down there to get a pic... didn't go over 30m though.. my computer was bleating at me!
couldn't get close enough.. but close enough to appreciate their beauty..
they were spotted eagly rays, with two different colour variations.

very monsoony at the mo'
on friday the waves were quite high.. doing back rolls off the boat was a laugh!

howling winds right now... and for the last three days.. i'm pleased because my airconditioning was broken for two days and it was boilin'. the gas had leaked from the system (now how did that happen? it's new!)

island life *sigh*

Aw, c'mon, Pekka, the BBC is constantly running alarmist stories of the heat waves in the UK, global warming will drown us all, new bugs are colonizing the island because things are so much warmer. :head It's got to be hot over there. Would the media lie? ;)
