I come for the high standard of user discourse, but I stay for the underwater photography.

Looking at these pictures makes me feel like an idiot for living where I live.

I'll never be able to look at underwater photography without a bait ball again.

Particularly impressive shots of a sardine bait ball being attacked by dolphins, sharks, whales birds and insomniacs thinking, "this 'll be just the ticket."

These shots are really fabulous. I've been doing some underwater photography myself and it's pretty hard. This one is pretty interesting because it looks almost like an illustration (at least, the shark part of it, the diver in the background looks pretty normal). A similar thing happened to a photo I took, where I did autolevels on it in photoshop and it got really weird.

For those enjoying the bait ball pics, check out this video of a humpback whale stealing a bait ball.

I could've sworn that said 'underwear photography' and so the whole thing about sardines just seemed in really bad taste.

Also, des, that was awesome. And upon further looking, I'm really glad my first reading was wrong.

These are so cool. I am such a sucker for underwater photography and these are particularly nice, thanks!

This last weekend my wife discovered that one of the fish stores that we frequent just hatched some baby cuttlefish. Seeing the photos in the Alien Lifeforms section is going to do nothing to diminish her desire to set up a tank specifically for this purpose.

I totally thought you said underwear too.
