Brother, you are blowing some minds here...Wonderful pics.
Jonathan and Lewis- Thanks and don't worry, I've got enough photos of different species that you'll be begging me to quit posting them after awhile:).
Well Mark, can't speak for Jonathan or Lewis, but you are unlikely find me begging for you to quit posting your fantastic photos. :-)
My personal belief is that it is fluid and that this stage is less "shiny" than currently assumed by most anglers because of adjectives attached to pupal patterns. The words "shiny" or "sparkly" are best reserved for the adult stages of those species whose returning egg layers dive carrying air bubbles with them.
