On a recent dive just off Vancouver Island we ran into a school of 12-15 Spiny Dogfish Sharks. They were standoffish at first then this 5-6 footer swam up for a closer look and I managed to get this close up from only a couple 4-5ft away! Enjoy!

Twin Rocks is famous for its jacks but these smaller fish schooled together to look like a huge fish I had to take the picture. The pinnacle, fish and sun made for a great photo.

I have been trying hard to get a good photo of a Banded Pipefish but when the guide pointed out this little 4cm baby it needed my 100mm macro lens plus my plus 5 diopter to bring out its true beauty.

An Egg Yolk Jelly with a cross Jelly in its stomach makes this tiny Jelly look like a shape shifter. With a body so translucent that it is hard to see at times it can be hard to know who is who when your stomach is full of a Jelly cousin.
