      I’m great, Brigitte. Getting ready for another dive trip and spending the holidays in a warm, tropical place. Hope you’re doing well, my friend and that your holidays are really, really good!

    An excellent reminder for us all. As we get older, it’s easy to get stuck in our ways and stick with the familiar.

    Fabulous picture!

  7. It wasn’t lost on me that Nate’s gay and this fish is call “queen”, Cathy (ha!)… I think that fish has been very open to eating too many cookies, like I was a year ago (and very glad I quit that addiction). I also think that fish thought that she (he?) was auditioning for a role in the Finding Nemo sequel when you snapped that great shot.

      Yes, I think this angelfish definitely struck a pose for me. It does look a bit “filled-out” from this angle, but in reality, this species is quite sleek and they move really fast in the water. I was very lucky to get this shot!

    Fabulous picture, and you couldn’t have found a better quote to go with it. Although I’m not sure her Majesty would agree!

    Love the quote, Cathy. So, so true. And your photo is divine. Your under water shots are so crystal clear, they always astonish me.

      Thank you, Mary. I was particularly proud of this one. These angelfish move so fast in the water, they’re really hard to capture. So when this one swam by and turned for a full-face pose – and I snapped the shot, and the strobe went off – I was really happy with the result!

  14. Oh wow! Stunning! Combined with a quote from Nate– I think he really has his act together. Wonderful what you’ve done with this one… or, I might have just left “Ditto” under Audra’s comment! πŸ˜‰ xox
