This thing would go instantaneous from one way to another similar to if you threw a ping pong ball against a wall. And we start to kind of orbit because we are going to watch this thing… It is still doing its erratic thing around this disturbance in the water and I say ‘Hey, I am going to go check it out, I am going to go down there’… And all of a sudden it goes [zip] and it kind of turns, now it’s mirroring us, it seems to know we are here… It goes from almost a hover, to a pretty aggressive climb up to our altitude. So now there is a bit of fear because you have no idea what it is. It is actually reacting to what we are doing.
