Yeah....that is the way I feel about it also.....

JFYI....In the second picture of the shark you can see that it is a "Black Tip Reef Shark"...they get about 6 feet long and are generally not aggressive to men.... but they have attacked and shouldn't be provoked....Believe me I didn't provoke him!!!! :)

:) O.K. you had me there in the water with the sea turtle until the shark swam by. It was a shark right. I'm sorry, I have been scared for life from "Jaws"! Came out when I was spending every weekend at the beach. Never quite trusted that cold water of R.I. again. :krazy:

However, your pics are great!

Oh, did I mention that I'm looking at the beach here in El Paso? Lots and lots of beach, just no water!!

Oh? my heart is breaking? you are living my dream!!! :)

Those are amazing shots?look at the tangs, and the butterflies?in the wild where they belong! I am so jealous! And the corals and urchins. And the SEA TURTLE?you are so very fortunate to have seen all these guys out in the wild like that. I have wanted to go back to Hawaii for 9 years, after visiting in 1997. I am this close to wanting to just move there!!

What kind of camera did you use for those shots? They came out well!

As long as they don't bite you...it's not too bad. You just have to keep an eye on them...they are curious and will approach and as you can see they will get close sometimes...but I turned to face him and he left the area....I must have that effect on things!!!! :lol:
