Tell me when to say "cheese". A very curious giant moray eel, getting tête à tête with my lens port. Canon Rebel XSi / Ikelite housing and strobes

"I am bigger than you think!" Male mandarin fishes are very territorial. This one is flaring his fins in attempt to enlarge his appearance, as a reaction to sudden visit of another male fish. Canon XSi / EF 100mm USM macro / Ikelite housing.

I came back to this guy twice to try and get a decent shot. I'm glad I did. I was quite happy with this one.

True colors. No PS here, the light on the background sharks has passed through water enough to absorb the warm colors, giving a cool blue caste. The close shark not so.. it could be balanced in LR but I like the contrasting colors and odd lighting.

Was it Jaws 3 or 4 where it ate the Helicopter? I layered this mainly because with refraction at the waterline the body didn't line up nicely, but a little Gin made the drone sound fun. The untouched version is in the over/under category..
