Hunting
This image was taken at Devils' Grotto.  I had hoped that a tarpon was coming through the hole in the silversides, but I got this Bar Jack instead. I was happy with it anyway.

Color
There is a lot of color on the Orange Canyon dive site, it is just a matter of lighting it to show to best advantage.

I took this at the Stingray City Deep dive site in a group of 15 people.  I was lucky in that there was enough current to blow away the worst of the silt they kicked up.

"Down"
We found a school of jacks near where I was staying on my last trip. I enjoyed trying to figure out how to get an image of them that showed them naturally.
