I was at that fish show, actually probably there when Roger took videotape
of that and other fish. He would pull stills from the tape later. (,,,which
I think is pretty cool.)

The second photo is, in this case, from a different angle and shows how deep
bodied the animal was.

That is a very perceptive observation about how different it looks from
multiple perspectives though!

Didn't know whether to give it an award or put it on a golf tee. ;)

Competition considered, we gave it an award. :)

I appreciate a tiny bit what can be done with photos. Once extended a group
photo. We lost 20 pounds each and grew 6 inches.

All the best,


> I don't know what kind of fish it is but the second picture certainly has
some photographic artifacts that have exaggerated the depth of the fish.
The photo appears to have been scrunched up. I have accidentally done that
with some of my photos, especially in powerpoint. These artifacts certainly
make an ID difficult.
