Taken in very strong current. I took 2 shots before my strobe arms folded back flat from the force. The Barracuda hovered around me effortlessly as I clung on like a flag, trying to take this shot!

Squid shot taken during a night dive. Photo was taken right before a jet of black ink was shot in my face and the squid took off.

Did you know that the Mantis shrimp has the fastest kick of ANY creature on earth? Equivalent to that of a .22 caliber bullet.
