Look! No hands!

My beautiful dive buddy, very carefully adopted this pose for this photograph at my request.


Can you see why putting your hands down like this whilst diving might be a bad idea? Later on on the day this was taken I had to intervene to prevent a diver making the potential mistake she's illustrating.

This time I've got it (now that I know the trick).

It's an "f" one of those venomous-spined cryptic bottom-dwellers, visible in the bottom left-hand quadrant. It's a fugu! (My old lab-mate, a fish systematist, would be very disppointed in me.)

Spot on Hugh - its actually a giant scorpionfish sat in that bottom left corner.
