Hi Elaine,

My pics aren't the greatest, but they serve to remind me of the dive and add a lot of enjoyment to my trips.

I always keep a close eye on the sand to look for any unusual depressions or patterns. The Torpedo ray at Arch Reef happened to be out in the open, but most are hiding under a half inch of sand (I found a hiding one on the last dive) I have especially good luck looking in sandy pockets near rocky reef.

You will find angel sharks, halibuts, torpedo rays, shovelnose guitarfish, and a host of other big flat fish hiding in the sand.

I really love rays. They're not too afraid of people and are often the largest fish that I can examine up close.

I'll send you a pic of a hiding Torpedo ray in a personal email.

Cheers,
Ross-O
