bloody magic shot,

Got to love those occies, when they sit there and eye you out. Did he flash colours at you when you came to close?
Years back we had one go cream to blood red on us as we swam towards him, before woooshing off into his hole.

Gday Indiana

Just recently upgraded to a Canon 5D mark II, big outlay to get the setup going but well and truly worth it.
