Damn the torpedoes!

I planned to shoot close focus wide angle of zoanthids on a wall off Catalina Island yesterday. As I arrived at the wall I was treated by a torpedo ray. I spent the next several minutes with it. I never did get my closeups. :(

It seems to me that you got the better end of that deal. Why does it upset you? You can go back tomorrow and get your close up, can't you?

With the quality of your photos, you could always crop in to get your "closeups"!!! Thanks for sharing. I've never heard of a torpedo ray before. Very nice lighting on the fish.

Nice shots! Must be nice to make that decision after you are under water. I was exclusively an underwater photographer for 20 years using a Nikonos and Kodachrome film... had to decide between close ups or normal shots before going into the water and after 36 shots it was all over. It would be nice to have had a housed digital all those years!
