    ok, thats better thanks Cyndy, I've created two collections, one for my photos and one for my observations. Will I get notified when one of my photos is reviewed or commented on? I'm not sure if they are linked to me... otherwise I'll have to get disciplined enough to go in and check regularly :(

    I see; that's great thanks Cyndy. I'll go back to my original plan; one collection for my photos and another for the species I have observed.

    Thanks Cindy, I did that at first but then realised that collections are public; is that ok to create a personal one? At the moment I've put them in my watchlist.

    On a recent 35 minute dive in Cabbage Tree Bay we spotted five of these sharks resting on the sandy bottom, often with their heads in a cave (like they thought we couldn't see them even though 80% of their bodies were poking out of the cave)

    The Rock Cale is abundant in the aquatic reserves around Sydney. It sits motionless, often on rocks, unless disturbed

    Just joined this community; I'm a long term nature enthusiast who has finally decided to leave the corporate world and follow my passion - marine science. Doing a masters next year... I've started adding marine life images to EOL
