Trout: Underwater Footage


This is some pleasant underwater footage of trout moving about in a stream. Where’s the love here!? Only Nizy likes this post? This is a cool underwater video of not only the trout but the movements below the surface. Watch it…like it!

Carpet Shark Swallows Bamboo Shark Whole

Wobbegongs (Carpet) Shark Sucks Down a Bamboo Shark (Daniela Ceccarelli & Tom Mannering, Nat Geo)

 I know there are all manner of advocates for Sharks and protecting this species and that one and I get that, but really this guy does not need any protections. Here I would be kicking along, oblivious or so hyper vigilant if I knew this creature was within an ocean’s distance, and there I would go. Now, how does a Bamboo Shark not know to watch out for the Wobbegongs Shark? They, the Bamboo Shark, definitely need some protection in the gene pool. (more here and other stuff from Eric Pfeiffer)

“Wobbegongs, aka carpet sharks, are silent predators, waiting at the bottom of the ocean floor for their pray to pass by. And as stunning as this photo may be, it’s not uncommon for Wobbegongs to devour such large meals. Like several kinds of snakes, the Wobbegong has a dislocating jaw and rearward-pointing teeth that help it consume disproportionately large prey.

Although Wobbegongs bite humans with some regularity, these usually aren’t actual attacks where the shark is hunting for prey. Rather, these bites tend to be more of a defensive reflex after the shark itself has been assaulted, usually by someone unintentionally stepping on it.” (That’s Me)


Catch Magazine #3 (Elixir for Winter Doldrums)


(Update January 4, 2008, see Comment from Brian O’Keefe~very interesting)

The underwater pics are amazing. Sometimes one can become too comfortable looking at these pics and take them for granted. The travel, efforts to catch and capture the moments and underwater release are perhaps lost on the armchair voyeur. Many of us have traveled or suffered enough to understand the logistics of getting there, figuring it out once there and then not fishing, but camera(s) in hand attempting to capture new and interesting images…something different…something to tweak from a new perspective…something to highlight the man (or woman), the water, the fish and nature’s magnificence. To write this is one thing…to capture many moods and nuances with a moments finger pressure is quite another. Synchronizing nature, fish, man and chance in a fleeting moment is an art we all can appreciate, but not duplicate. Hence, Brian and Todd et al to travel, plan and intuitively shoot.

This is, again, a spectacular issue. Anyone can find numerous shots here to wash a satisfying elixir over the brain. I posted re Jay Moor, from Utah, yesterday. All these flyfishermen, who pic up the cameras are blessed with an inner eye for composition that provides us the impetus to travel, daydream of some day hopefully traveling or to see the potential for beauty in our own back yard through a camera’s lens.
