Hi David ..... havenít seen you around in a while !!!!!
I'm not sure which one you are comparing the picture to but to tell you the truth I donít remember seeing that Manta. The markings on the bottom are much different than a few pictures I posted in U/W Photography some time ago.
Here is a blown up shot of the manta under my name ..... The pattern on the underside is much different.
The manta in your link has a very predominate marking on the left side, another large marking on the right and looks like there are several spots through the gill area (thats a tough angle to tell from ). I donít recall seeing this one while we were there.....Looks like a new discovery...... Unless Bacchus has a picture of her!!
I've been more of a lurker recently, as I have been busy getting ready for the highlight of my calendar, a dive show. Ahhhhhh!
David, are you coming along, or have you got something infinitely more interesting to do that weekend?!
I am also in the process of dealing with perhaps the most stupid people have dealt with in quite some time, they being the reservations department of the Sheraton Hotel at LAX airport. A simple fax of 2 weeks ago has still not illicited a response from the dimwits, and every time I phone I never seem to be able to talk to the person I want to..... Blimey, you would have thought a simple request for some rooms and a rate would be easy, but quite clearly not!!!
Scott, me hearty, how are you and Firstmate, ahaarrrrrrrr? How's the new job? Dispensing any exciting drugs? (Gimme gimme!) Been sailing recently?
Well, I better try the twerps at the Sheraton on the phone again!
Now what have I been drinking this week? I could have sworn they looked the same before, but you are clearly right.
I'm such an idiot, I must have dreamt ever comparing the shots properly.
Is Thierry still on the board? It would be nice to put a name to the belly as it were...
Well Ö. we will let it slide this time ....... Thierry ....havenít seen him in quite some time ...... If you have a few pictures copy them to disc and send them to Thierry .... then he finds the ones not named and prints them out for the manta wall....
Scuba Jim.... was beginning to wonder if you went AWOL and grabbed the pink tutu and moved to the Eden Beach you know you would be a big star !!!!!
Have you got the site updated with Tahiti pictures yet ???? well I guess I can check on my own ....only sailing we've been doing is to boat shows.......at this point I need an Ice Boat !!!!! If fact heading up to BAAAAAHHHHHSTON......this weekend to see some friends and goto the boat show up there.....that is if it doesnít snow again.....
So did the First Mate and yours truly make the slide show ???? you know the picture from The White Valley ???? I need an autographed copy of that one for our wall ????? Whatís it going to cost me ????
Hmmm So when is the reunion trip to French Polynesia ???? I dont think the fishies could handle the four of us chasing them with strobes !!!!!!!! :out: :out: That could be real interesting !!!!
