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.

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.

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.

A banded Butterfly fish stopped swimming to check out my port...I think she saw her reflection in there.

"Down"
We found a school of jacks near where I was staying on my last trip. I enjoyed trying to figure out how to get an image of them that showed them naturally.

Taken in Anilao, at the dive site called Coconuts. A yellow goby pair was very obvious on thee abandoned tube, so while going around the tube, we located the eggs they were so carefully guarding, eggs are about a day or two away from hatching.

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.
