    Here is a video of me and assistants collecting a O. cyanea in Hawaii for my research, not the easiest thing to do but fun.

    That one was a hard one to get, he shot out of the the hole and I grabbed him and handed him off to my dive buddy and it crawled up his hoses onto his back and I had to grab him again and finally got him in the bag. It takes a lot of practice to find them and get them before they get into a hole :) I'm done with the research, and just finishing up the writing. It was too bad I could not make the last TONMOcon, but now that I'm on the mainland for a while it should make things easier.

    Must be my ears were burning. I was talking to Neal about making enough money to pay for my trip if we go to CA again. Working a min wage job to pay for tires and Xmas but not on the car we would take East Coast and would not drive cross country alone (would be fun but I am no longer that adventurous :old: )
