Back From Raja Ampat!!

I am back from my dive trip.

It was great diving, but the weather was really crappy. It was really windy and rainy the entire week...that made for some really rough conditions when it is usually calm as a lake. Since the weather was so bad, I didn't get to do any flying either...a bummer. I will have to wait until October to do some flying...oh well.

Here are some Striped Sweet Lips that I just love to photograph. I had to wait for the right moment when every fish was facing the same direction...that took some patience. I wish the fish would listen to my instructions!! They just don't cooperate like good models are supposed to do...

I am flying to the United States on Wednesday, so I will only have a couple of posts this week, but will get a few more underwater shots up on the blog before I leave...

Looks like they were obeying pretty well by the end of the obedience school lesson... now I understand why they call it a "school" of fish. Beautiful !

So lovely, Scotty. Patience pays off, I can tell.
Hope you have a good trip to the US.
