[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I took this underwater photo during a trip to the Great Barrier Reef staying on a Live-a-Board for a week. This was a giant barracuda that was hanging out under our boat when I came up from a dive. Apparently is it fairly common for him to show up at this particular dive site, so he was given a name - Brutus. It seems to fit - he's very big & menacing looking.

We saw lots of barracuda while diving in Australia - sometimes even seeing small schools of them. Brutus was the only extra large one we saw. He was about 5 feet long & most of the others we saw were 2-3 feet long.

Due to their reflective silver color.... I think they are one of the hardest fish to photograph! At least Brutus made it a little easier by hanging around.
