"Lace"
Look for a few seconds and watch the fish appear! A slender filefish--and its eye--is framed by a seafan. I floated gently into place to frame the eye, and positioned my strobe in order to backlight the fish and seafan.

"Stars Above And Below"
Starfish are seen both through the surface of the water and below. No Photoshop: I used my wide angle dome port for this shot, carefully angling my camera housing in order to get both the over and under water views.

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.

"Silver Rush"
Silversides rush over sponges on the North Wall. They arrive on Grand Cayman once a year...if we're lucky. They're amazing to photograph--racing in large packs to evade predators.

A two claw shrimp peers out from a purple vase sponge. This kind of shrimp is a rare find in Cayman! I used a shallow depth of field to focus just on the shrimp's eyes.
