Got Milk?

May 12, 2006

As all fisherman know, any floating object in deep waters attract an abundance of fishes around and below it. Spotting this milk crate in the AuAu Channel off the island of Lanai in Hawaii we stop and are amazed at the juvenile jacks, sergeant majors, chubs and other fishes surrounding this floating oasis. There is even a small remora clinging to the side of the crate!

Seeing Spots on Maui!

May 10, 2006

A flat-calm morning here on Maui in the AuAu Channel as the day was spent with these magnificent Pantropical Spotted Dolphins. When born they are "spotless", and only acquire their spotted pattern with maturity.

Long-beaked Common Dolphins!

April 13, 2006

Another beautiful Baja sunrise to start the morning here between Isla Carmen and Isla Danzante. Glass-flat water this morning is only interrupted by the blows of these magnificent Long-beaked Common Dolphins. Pure magic to watch and photograph!

San Esteban Chuckwallas!

April 11, 2006

Another incredible sunrise here on Isla San Esteban, and perfect weather to find the endemic Pinto Chuckwalla. Once threatened by sales in the reptile collector trade, these giant lizards are now doing well here.
