More photos from the Easter weekend of diving

We’ve managed to collect quit a bit of underwater camera equipment over the past years, especially in the last few months.  This has caused a bit of a dilemma, it’s hard to decide which kit to use, I like it all.  This weekend gave us the opportunity to try out a few different setups, with different cameras.  Oh what fun, here are our favourite shots….

Before you look at the photos, I have to mention that we did see manta rays on every dive, unfortunately we didn’t get any decent photos.  It’s such a wonderful time of year to dive at Cook Island.

Notice the small cleaner scrimp on the cod’s upper lip, just after I took this photo the shrimp returned to its home, the small anenome in the lower left of the photo.

Above is the close up of the cleaner shrimp. I was almost touching the cod when I took this shot and the cod didn’t move, it wasn’t bothered at all.
