Re: ThThTh Invades Anilao, Philippines

All of it is spectacular!! Especially love the Pygmy seahorse twisting, the 3 sheep nudis, mantis shrimp with eggs, vibrant blue ring octo, all the many colors and sizes of frog fish (hairy too!), Coleman shrimp pair in the urchin and the emperor shrimp on the nudi! Wow! Your skill is amazing! Than...

Did you take legal action against the magazine? No. They are a non-profit, trying to do good things. Legal action would have just cost us all time and money. 'Tis a shame.

PSA: Nauticam using images without permission!

Just wanted to make a PSA if you're a photographer who shares your images on social networks. I recently went to the Nauticam website to research a dome port for my GH5 camera.
