This could be fun... diving photos.

I just thought I'd post up some pictures I took while diving in the Caymans, see if anyone could decipher some of the fish. Sorry the colors aren't great -







The Stingrays in the photos had "wingspans" of ~ 2.5 - 3ft.







Barracuda?



Lionfish?

I don't think that's a barracuda. Ther teeth extend all the way to the tip of their mouths.

Looks like you had a blast.

It's definitely a great time - the Stingrays absolutely fascinated me, I spent most of my time chasing them around. So graceful. If you can get close enough, you can actually touch them and they don't seem to mind.

Whatever that needle-nose fish was, it was pretty docile and stayed away from people.

That "barracuda" is actually a needle fish. You can catch them trolling in the caymans and in mexico sometimes, they are so slimy, it's really gross.
