Ditto - BUT - Don't look at the subject when you take PICTURES! Sea Urchin spins go THROUGH glove - believe me!

When we started diving, my wife nearly touched a lion-fish - because it was beautiful and "just hanging there".....
I nearly got a fit underwater....

Ja - things like that happen if people don't know what they dealing with. It was just when we did our 1st open water dives at Ponto Malongane :)
only after she saw what a octopus looked like after attacking a lion fish in a LFS did she realise the how dangerous they are. it's still her fav fish. probably have to get her one, one day
