Highlights: Getting back out at LJS with good friends, seeing all the D. iris nudis.

We all met up for Spencer's 'bachelor party' dive and to take his sister and brother-in-law out for a dive. I was shooting wide angle, so the D. iris photos are not quite what I would have done with a macro lens.

It was good practice, in any case and it was really cool seeing them spread out all over the sand at ~25-30 ft. Some were mating, some were swimming, some were having an orgy.
