2009 12 Cozumel
      Stonefish in Hiding Intova IC10
2009 12 Cozumel Stonefish in Hiding (Intova IC10).  Of the 1200 venomous fish, this is the most lethal.
They secrete a milky substance that allows their surrounding environment to "grow" on them camouflaging them.
They don't "attack".  But to step on them releases the venom from their 13 dorsal spines.

2009 12 Grand Cayman Trumpet Fish Using  Anchor Line to Hide Behind (Intova IC10).  As I went
around the anchor cable it continued to move around to hide until Jill was on the other side. 
Notice it is the same color as the anchor line.  They can change color to match their surroundings.

2009 12 Grand Turk Stonefish Encrusted but Very Alive (Intova IC10).  At first I didn't think it was alive.
The mouth was open.  As I got close it snapped shut.  This is a stonefish encrusted into the coral.  It sucks
in its prey with lightening fast speed.

Of course, that gives me more photo ops.  Here we were snorkeling instead of diving.

      Picture of Me with My New Mask and Bifocal Lens Intova IC10
2009 12 Jill Takes a Picture of  Me with My New Mask and Bifocal Lens (Intova IC10).  I had to get a new
mask.  My Original Dacor Tri-view still worked fine.  But, in Key West, we saw one on display... in the
antique dive museum!  Ok, so I have been diving for a long time.   In the lower right I have a stick on bi-focal
so I can read my guages and camera settings.  I am still using my 20+ year old Dacor BC.  I haven't seen one
in the museum yet.
