"Face To Face"
Queen angelfish are normally quite skiddish, swimming off if a diver comes near. This one was eating a sponge and was more concerned with lunch than with me. I took this photograph when it momentarily looked up from the sponge.

"Golden Portrait"
A rare golden coney. No filters used: I angled my strobes to light just the coney's face, and used a high shutter speed, which kept the water behind it blue and provided a nice contrast to the yellow.

"Ray Under Rays"
Since the Ray's are so used to snorkelers and divers, they have enough trust to make overhead passes like these, making for interesting angles and of course sun rays.
