    Bonaire Diving ---- Day 5

    When I first got out of bed this morning, there were a couple birds making a terrible commotion outside. I spied them, and thought I would take a quick pic.



    Now for the diving. I got a couple good ones today. Love these little garden eels.



    Probably one of the best shots of the Mil Sharky I have ever taken....



    Nice Trumpet Fish



    Love the Flounder



    I love the FileFish





    A little Barracuda



    A nice Anemone



    Brain Coral Formation



    Parrot Fish



    Porcupine Puffer



    Some Blue Tangs

    Best Regards,
    Jason

    ...there were a couple birds making a terrible commotion outside...
    Were they talking? Look like the type that could.

    The Garden Eel is something totally new to me, never even heard of one! You saw lots of critters this time around. I wonder how many of them are bragging to their cohorts "I saw some scuba diving humans today".....

    Great pics as usual, keep 'em comin'!

    Wow, more excellent photos yet again, thanks for sharing!

    That is a nice shot of the Mil Shark, good job.

    Which ones did you use the flash on? Many look like they were shot without the flash, would that be right?

    Thanks again,
    --Keith

    Awesome pics!! I see a definite increase in the picture quality related to your time in the water. You seem to be totally relaxed in your environment. Could you imagine yourself doing this for a living?

    I'm impressed with the variety you're seeing - that and the fact you've found names for so many of them, I usually end up telling folks "well, here's a yellow one, and here's a blue one, and here's a yellow one with blue spots - the elusive blue-spotted yellow fin"

    Truly wonderful photos!

    Very cool Jason! That Mil Shark pic is a real winner.

    Those parrots look like they're waiting for a couple of pirates. Aaaargh, matey!

    I always thought what you identified as garden eels were actually some type of sea snake.....

    Keep 'em coming!

    Interestingly enough, I had the flash set up incorrectly on several of the pictures and it did not fire the strobe. I had it straightened out on the 2nd dive:oops:

    My wife informed me as to what those little critters were called. Check this out......

    I agree, great shot.

    Now imagine the same watch with a black hour hand, white minute hand and orange seconds hand. The hour hand would all but fade away, the minute hand(which is most important) would be visually dominate, and the seconds hand, while still visible, would be muted in comparison to the minute hand. Ultimate underwater legibility and utility.

    And to differentiate the design from the Milshark, keep the black bezel but give it a fully brushed stainless case and bracelet. If I could have a few minutes in the DOXA parts bin, I could come up with one heck of a diving DOXA.
