It only makes sense when the whale sharks show up that the Mer people would also. This was captured Northeast of Isla Mujeres MX last year. One of the more difficult captures I have taken. Not because the image is difficult to take but I was sea sick. Like so sea sick I give the camera to Handler because I thought I was going to pass out. Rule one, Always save the camera. And to make things worse I had gotten a killer head cold on the trip down to the island. Luck did turn my way however there just happened to be a Mermaid convention on the island that week.
When I say infant photo shoot in the water most people blow me off. When they realize I’m serious they think I’m CRAZY. When they see the photos they are amazed. Babies do very well in the water after the initial shock of being put in the pool. They hold there breath naturally and even make swimming strokes. Of course they act like little flotation devices because of there body composition. They shoot straight to the top of the water.
