    If I'm not mistaken--the correct spelling should be "never theirs." --no apostrophe.

    (Either way, I understood what you meant.)

    If you have the opportunity, also go down to Sebring and see Highlands Hammock State Park - http://www.floridastateparks.org/hig...ck/default.cfm. It's less than 2 hours south of Orlando and was definitely a highlight of my trip to FL in June, even though it was so dry that the swamp trail was dry.

    edit - back to the topic . . . those are cool photos and I'm glad I've never seen photos of what was probably nearby when I was swimming in FL as a kid. I used to love swimming among the fish. Like a lot of things that were cool then, it seems so stupid now. I'm not sure which perspective is better, but the current one seems safer.

    I believe the people who do such things as swim in bait fish schools or even near them often experience a principal that a man name Darwin came up with. It usually refered to as natural selection or often survival of the fittest.

    Seriously though I dont feel bad for people who get attacked by sharks when they are swiming in schools of bait fish. If you arnt smart enough to stay out of the water when there are sharks and bait fish around then you deserve what you get.

    I wonder how many more people are killed or maimed on the road to & from the beach than by sharks once they get there. I don't have any data to back it up, but I think time spent in traffic is more dangerous than time spent swimming with baitfish.
