Fun photos! That PMH shot must have been very difficult to get at that eye-level angle.

I'll post some of my recent shots to the thread later tonight. Been meaning to share those here.

Fantastic pics Derek! I like the ling shot where you got too close to the eggs! Also the baby horned shrimp and stubbies are great!!! :)

Hope to dive with you soon. Didn't dive this weekend, it's so strange staying on land. Stay safe over there

Great pics from both of you!

To go along with your lovely Nudi's :) , may I present the lighter side of these wee beasties?

Awesome pics all, and great idea Jess. I ate pie but didn't dive on Pie Day unfortunately. Hopefully it's not too late to add a few more random pictures since the world is a bit crazy at the moment....

Amazing pics everyone! Nice to share some underwater joy. :joshsmith:

Here's a short video from Thursday nights at Redondo over the past few weeks. The featured guest is, in my opinion, is the cutest critter in our waters - the lumpy!

Derek, Your post had me searching through my old lumpy photos for color variations. I think the bright pink one or yellow/red are my favorite. But it’s been a while since I’ve seen something other than orange or brown.
