Today I've seen a very long fishing net fixed on the bottom. Representative of so many animals in the net I show you this poor scorpion fish. On this spot is fishing absolutely forbidden. Sorry, even those images must be documented.

Not only that this is a good shot with superb exposure, it also wakes us all up and reminds us what we are diving and shooting for. A very clear message in your photo, Roland....and this makes it a well deserved winner-shot :-)
