I took a very rare photo of a blanket octopus. These are nearly impossible to find as they mainly stay in the gulfstream.  This was in about 30 feet of water off Key Largo.

Pelagic Sharks, like this Blue Shark are under the most pressure from fishing and the finning industry. A very curious Blue Shark with some war wounds and souvenir.

Baited feeds has changed the shark behaviour in the Bahamas but it's also created a healthy revenue for the islands, and as such more than 40 species of shark enjoy full protection from the Bahamian government over 240,000 square miles.

We had the opportunity to visit the Atlantic Coast - Myrtle Beach, South Carolina in February. Beautiful beach, with so few visitors - well except the ever present Sea Gulls. I thought I would take a pic from their perspective - lovely.
