Welcome to IF! This is gorgeous. If I ran into one of these, I think I'd give up deep sea diving, too.

Welcome aboard Richard, and what a fine entry to boot!! Now I'm having second thoughts about scuba diving. Anyhow, excellent work here.

Very nice quality to this piece. It brings a smile to my face. Id take gliding over diving, anyday! Not the same kind of critters up in the air! Welcome from another fairly newbie.
