    So graceful and elegant... sometimes the most beautiful creatures pack the biggest [relative] punch. Incredible photo.

    Fantastic texture, did you use a flash? Looks like a lot of particulates in the water. Great capture.

    Thanks for the comments everyone! Bobengr-- I used a strobe pointed upwards. This water is actually quite clear by pacific northwest standards.

    Too bad the water was not particle free.
