“If, amidst the turmoil, you can find just one moment of peace in each day, then your whole life will become more joyful. Like the water in a lake, when your mind is calm, you can see the depths below.”

  5. I love your underwater photos so much. These fish are really cute. At first I thought they were Sergeant Majors with the stripes but then I saw your comment that they were Batfish.

      Thanks so much, Weebs! You’re right that they’re somewhat similar to Sergeant Majors, but they’re a lot bigger and more disc like. Here’s another shot of the same school with a diver. You can appreciate the scale…I don’t know why they’re called batfish because they look like angel fish to me.

  7. Cathy, I looked at that great underwater photo and thought, “What do we have here, bluefish?” When I saw “batfish” I nearly choked on my lunch laughing just now, especially since my friend, Mike G., just noted on my site that comedy is all about timing. Brilliant!

      V,
      Hilarious! I’m not sure why they’re called batfish either. And, yes, comedy is all about timing. I find I do similar things…And sometimes my sense of humor confounds others. Glad you liked the shot.
