|Midwater is a busy place|

Our dives only allow a brief window into the ever-changing midwater landscape. A world of beauty and drama, it gives me the sense of witnessing a grand process, something much larger than ourselves.
I don't think my feet will touch bottom again for a long time.
Each of 8 dives on the Barge over a two-week period revealed a different assortment of zooplankton. I was aware of only a handful of species, and usually 2 or 3 species would outnumber the rest of the pack.
These two fish were sheltering by our anchor line for most of one dive. Kevin Lee identified them as larval flatfish. The second photo appears to be an older fish, as its eye has started to migrate.
