Hunting
This image was taken at Devils' Grotto.  I had hoped that a tarpon was coming through the hole in the silversides, but I got this Bar Jack instead. I was happy with it anyway.

I took this at the Stingray City Deep dive site in a group of 15 people.  I was lucky in that there was enough current to blow away the worst of the silt they kicked up.

Color
There is a lot of color on the Orange Canyon dive site, it is just a matter of lighting it to show to best advantage.

The contrast between the Flamingo Tongue snail and the black sea rod attracted me, and the result is an almost luminous snail on the rod.

"Embedded"
This crab moved into the gorgonian to avoid being photographed, so I moved under it and quite like the result.

This last December I went to Anilao, Philippines. Sometimes the image you dream of is not what you get, but instead you get something a bit better.

Working on using a diopter while in a macro workshop, I came across this nudi and tried to do justice to how beautiful it was.

While in Anilao, I decided to shoot a tunicate and play with light. This is a clear tunicate with the strobe light just barely touching it, making it look pale blue.

I spent a bit of time trying to get this "face" shot of this rather small ornate ghost pipefish. I was happy with the result of the time spent.

I came across this neon goby sitting out in the bright sunlight and decided to make him look like he might be floating on a cloud, rather than sitting on hard coral.
