The photo title "Diving with the Fishes" is correct if they are talking about more than one species of fish...which I believe they were because I see more than one and it is pretty difficult to dive with a single species of fish unless you are confined to a tank or aquarium.

I shop for waterproof cameras mainly for durability and dustproof.  I treat my camera badly, because it's with me all the time, and most telescoping lenses get gritty after a year of use.  I also take my cameras to Burning Man and other desert events.  Point being, they're not just for "relaxing by the pool".

in "Diving with the Fishes", it's not "Fishes", it's "Diving with the Fish"
