Love the sinker in the corner :)

He is beatiful, but I'm still creeped out bringing one upon the hook, or the thought that they are swimming in 'my water'

Wicked - a leopard shark! I've snorklend with those guys, really placid creatures. The species aside you've caught this shot in great light. Beautiful golden glow.

An interesting shark. The pattern is quite different to anything I have seen. Great light too. Well done.
Karen Stuebing03-Jul-2006 10:15
Fantastic capture. I love all the gold and the markings on the fish. I'm glad it wasn't killed. It's much too pretty.

Great shot! The shark does not look happy, he's probably saying "wait 'til I grow up"..lol.
Robin Reid03-Jul-2006 04:55
Excellent Herb. Good eye and catch and the lighting really adds. I like your crop also, keeping the man in the scene helps set the context.

A shark? eeeuw - I didn't realise they were so spotty. The pattern on it is quite attractive really isn't it?
