    Lots of interesting avatars on this site.

    Some are, presumably, of you diving. Others are more leftfield.

    Mine is of a polar bear underwater. Why? Because I like polar bears and have been told that if they made white suits I'd bear (get it ;)) more than a passing resemblance to one in the water.

    Kittens and rainbows. It's a protest avatar. I (very) briefly had a shot of Jessica Alba's peachy arse for no other reason than it looked good. It was removed, so I went for the least offensive image I could find.

    Mine is good ol' Kaneda from the Japanese animé Akira. He's been my avatar for around 10 years or more. Why? cos he's badass.

    Mine has a wolf in the picture as always. When Wootton Bassett got the Royal upgrade in October 2011, I felt the the wolf needed a suitable crown. :)

    Mine's Papa Lazerou frm League of Gentlemen, cos he's kinda funny and sinister. Just like the show. Which was rather amusing at the time of broadcast. Plus I rather enjoy blacking up myself for fancy dress parties.

    Based on that, I should be allowed to keep JA's arse as I am one. Before Clanger says it...

    Mine is me just after I'd heard that I'd finally passed my DM. Those who've been on here a while will know how much it meant to me. Aside from that, I'd also just jumped in the swimming pool in celebration in Indonesia and (being hydrophobic since birth) had never jumped into water through choice until then.... happy Pol :)

    The bell off the wreck of the Aberdon - we were the first people to visit her since she was sunk by the U12 and although i didn't find the bell myself it means alot to have been a (very small) part of the team who located and identified her :cool:

    Mine's just me on my OW in the Red Sea.

    It makes me smile everytime I see it because that was such a great time.

    I almost wish I had something exciting now!
