My Favorite Sighting

Although spotting a Sharp Tail Eel was phenomenal, my favorite run in was one of the most unexpected sights.

I was swimming along the coast right outside of our resorts doors, about 10 feet off the shoreline, and in about 3 feet of water I found myself drifting right on top of a Barracuda!!!

I panicked and didn't know what to do. I knew swimming away like a frantic idiot would only cause the Barracuda aggravation, so I began to swim backwards using my flippers very slowly.

As I swam away, I took a very decent shot of the Barracuda. It barely even seemed to care that I was there. Here is what I caught though. I think it came out pretty damn good!
Just look at that beauty!!! When I have the time, I will clean this photo up in photoshop and re-post it for better viewing.
