Ocean Day II

I thought I would post this picture of a school of Jacks off Dirty Rock in the Cocos Island in honor of Ocean Day. This was shot towards the end of the dive when we were making our accent to our safety stop, the rock face is behind me. This was the head of the school, there were a lot more Jacks behind this came past us and turned into a Jack tornado. I was sorely tempted to follow them to get better pictures but we had been (very strongly) cautioned against going out into the blue because of the currents. A 2 knot current can carry you 1/2 mile in 15 minutes, which would put a diver out of sight of the panga.
