    Those are some fantastic shots. Is there any way to get higher-res versions of some of the squid spawnings?

    thanks for the compliments re the photos.

    ill keep an eye on the squid eggs and try and get some progressive photos of their development .... were able to go diving most weekends(weather dependant) were 7mins drive from the boat ramp and have ocean views out the kitchen window...
