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.

Traffic Patterns
I can't help but wonder how the sand tiger sharks figure out which direction they're going to go, or which group they're going to hang out with.

Shadow Sharks
There were so many sand tiger sharks around us while diving off of North Carolina a couple weeks ago, that they seemed to just come out of nowhere.

Steadfast
One of the amazing things about being among so many sand tiger sharks is that they were incredibly tolerant of our being close to them. They were in 'the zone,' and weren't going to be bothered by a few curious divers.
