    Thanks you, it's nice of you to say! Yes I'm passionate! I honestly spend 0 time on the beach and all my time in the water, last trip in Grand Cayman I did snorkeling/free diving 14/14 days.

    On this trip I made 6/7 cause we took one complete day to explore everything we wanted to see on the island.

    I feel very privileged to see what I have seen over the years. One of the greatest experience was to spend an hour and a half with a wild dolphin, no tour, no organized stuff, just like that. The dolphin became somehow accustomed to me and he even touched me, jumped around me, it draw many other tourists but no one had the privilege to be 'friend' with him, some other people tried to approach him and he became aggressive, he snap his jaw many time very aggressively a few inch (less the 6'') near their legs.

    But I got a video when he was around me and touched me, he even made me pretty eyes...

    And one other video, not related (Grand Canyon) but worth seeing (in full screen) IMO :

    Eric,
    Really great pictures...I have a question....was that a turtle leg(fin) on one of the pics ???
    And I think the one fish you mentioned about the "paw" is called a lizard fish...saw a lot of those on a dive trip to bonaire and last year saw a couple up by arashi beach...
    also....soooooo cool the group of squid !!!!!
    leaving in 3 days and can't wait to get in the water and see what I find !!!!!
    ARUBA....HOME AWAY FROM HOME

    Yes it is. Here is a video I just uploaded so you can have an idea of how much dead fishes and parts of fishes there was at this place. I cannot say anger was the emotion I felt, more like sadness.



    Thanks!

    Canon G10 : http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canong10

    And the waterproof case : http://www.amazon.com/Canon-WP-DC28-.../dp/B001G5ZTQS

    Very satisfied.

    Now they are selling G15 (they leapfrogged G13 and G14). But something weird is that G10 has 14.7 megapixel and all the others have less, like G15 as 12.1 megapixel, some feature are better though.

    eric, good videos, weird thing is some of the dead pieces of fish look like they were cut into square chunks....wonder if it's a feeding ground for people to see fish when on a tour of somekind.....strange, or just me reading something into what is not actually going on.....
    Going to aruba in a couple of days and taking my dive camera with.....it is a sealife, 12mp camera with a sealife underwater housing unit....got it last year, so have never used it for underwater pics (took it to germany right after I got it last year) it takes great pics, so I will see how it does underwater.....
    maybe I can get some great ones like you did.....even one or two would be cool !!!!
    ARUBA....HOME AWAY FROM HOME
