    East China Sea

    萱打ちバンター(沖縄本島北部、辺戸岬のちょっと手前)

    My first "fav>5%" photo! Also, the only one to meet the "5 favorites" minimum requirement. Roughly one in 10 viewers marks it as a favorite.

    The Nemo that everyone knows is hanging from my travel day pack. (See thumbnail below.) He never fails to draw kids' attention in airports around the world.

    カクレクマノミ(kakure kumanomi) = "Nemo, clownfish, orange anemonefish" (Amphiprion ocellaris)

    This photo is from a trip for which wI posted my numbers on line.

    Bottom time: 41 minutes
    Depth: 39.9 m max.; 16.7 m avg.

    I can't tell from the lighting because the water was crystal clear, permitting no-flash shots at the bottom. (Very deceiving, but I've learned to watch my dive computer and gauges.) But I'd say around 10 m, between my second decompression stop and the safety stop. Note that it was a boat dive with no rocks close between the two.

      In eight months, I've uploaded over 4000 photos, but so far only this one has made the "interestingness" listings.

      Maybe I should follow others' leads and spam all the groups that I can find. NOT!

      Update: Since January, there's a second.

      The truth is out! Hinderik spotted my big brother's giant sister.

      Very timely because September dawned rainy in Tokyo.

      Not to worry. I'm off to Hawaii tonight!
