Feeling new headerish

Fall is definitely here and it spilled over to my header. I just felt the need for a change and autumn leaf colors so I pulled one of the first underwater photos I had ever taken. This was with my dad's old Nikonos film camera from the 1980s. One of the first point and shoots for snorkelers and was touted for its ability to withstand 15 feet of compression. This photo was actually shot at 25 feet under the sea at a reef in the Bahamas called the "Aquarium". You are looking at a shot of elkhorn or stag horn coral with a Parrotfish going through its mottled stage - hence the rich red and checkered looking body along with Sargent Majors (vertical striped fish) and French Grunts (yellow with fine horizontal striping). This reef was rich in sea life and I came away with some really colorful photos.

As you can see, I am playing with my description size so it won't detract from the background photo. Your insight and comments are always appreciated. Have a wonderful Thursday. Sea Witch
