Hoho. Really nice. But it might be better if you were closer and done it a bit sharper. Btw. Weren't you afraid of THIS?
beautiful shot. the background and the sea color are terrific.
unfortunately you can't get any closer for both legalities and mainly safety. as an idea of it's size, those flippers/fins (forgotten the name ) on it's side apparently weigh about a tonne each! it was easily twice the size of the boat i was on. plus you never know when or where they're gonna breach as they disappear for a couple of minutes then just come shooting out of the water. i think one actually landed on a boat last year :shock:
i was supprised i got it as i just happened to see it out of the corner of my eye and swung my camera round. didn't realise how nice it was until i got the film back from the developers
they're amazingly freindly though, they'll come over and look at the boat and follow you around (or prehaps they were just stalking us :shock: )
Why not at a Sealife Park....?

Not The best of shots, but due to thier very shy Nature, the best portrait I was able to get of this crustacian.
A pity I could only get photos of this one in a zoo.
I looked for a category on "Zoo Photography" in the index but so far I can't find any. I was sure I'd find it ... maybe I can't look. I was sure we had a category on "Zoo Photography" somewhere... Does anyone know more than I do?
