Re: Underwater Photography

Here's a little bit of video shot from the beach at La Jolla Shores, San Diego, CA.

Every summer we get masses of Leopard Sharks in this area. The day I shot this they were in a semi-usual spot just hanging out in 4-6' of water just past the breaking area.

I was out there last weekend without any camera and saw a few in a different spot. This weekend I came prepared and after a while I eventually found them. The "viz" certainly isn't perfect but its still a good idea of what you can experience here in SD.

Coming from being born and raised in Arkansas to living in SD this kind of thing is just awesome! I was able to share this experience with my mother and brother last week. They still live in Arkansas and were just blown away by the things one can experience in the ocean.

Yeti, that would have been amazing to experience.

I know Leopard sharks are not generally a threat to humans, but did your heart hammer extra hard?

I always had a partly irrational fear spotting reef sharks in Australia and they are mainly harmless unless you have speared a fish.

Definitely!

I know that they're basically harmless to humans and all but there's always that little spot in the back of your mind going, WTH!!!!

The week before with my mother and brother we just ran into two or three. Yesterday, once I finally found them it was just the "two or three" that almost instantly became a few dozen plus. That totally had me thinking, "I should be walking out now!" However I was floating above them and I didn't want to put my foot down there. I eventually swam out the side and walked in without disturbing them and immediately got my GF down there to check it out.

Super Fun!!!

Re: Underwater Photography

Not the most spectacular, but certainly the tiniest octopus I have ever seen was spotted clinging to the base of our anchor's roll bar, its colours blending beautifully with the galvanising:

Re: Underwater Photography

We went back to LaJolla Shores today and the viz was definitely improved.

Re: Underwater Photography

My attention was distracted from octopuses when I spotted this guy. I was a little scared of him so didn't tackle him head on.

Any takers on what this is? I have searched extensively online and come up with nothing. The spectacular wings extended after I had dived down far enough for him to feel threatened. Size was about 30 cm (12"). Depth found was about 5m.

Re: Underwater Photography

Looks like a Flying Gunard (Dactylopterus volitans), a harmless beastie.

Yes, spot on, that's it! I have never seen one before. Thanks Nigel.

With growing up in Australia I think I have a healthy fear of unknown creatures. So many of ours can be especially mean .

Underwater Photography

SWL~
Absolutely beautiful! It's smart to have some respect for colorful things. It's natures way to warn us.
