Last year I posted a jawfish with eggs that were about to hatch. This is the same jawfish shot a few days earlier just after the eggs were laid. From Little Cayman Island. Nikon D200 with 105mm lens.

I was very fortunate to see these two Black-Saddled Tobies spiraling upward in a mating ritual. I got a sequence of about a dozen shots before the action ended. Dauin, Philippines.

A lot of searching and a lot of luck to find this male Yellowhead Jawfish incubating eggs on Little Cayman Island, BWI. The eggs are just about to hatch.

Sailfin Blenny (Emblemaria pandionis). Sailfins are not rare in the Cayman Islands, but this is the only one I've ever seen completely out of its tube and with its sail up. I only got one shot before it disappeared.

Puffball Sponge (Oceanapia sagittaria), a small sponge that is normally buried under sand/rubble. The stalk and puffball are sent up periodically for reproduction. The tendrils remind me of synapses in the brain.

Giant Frogfish (Antennarius commersoni) in Anilao. This is the the biggest and best camouflaged frogfish I've ever seen. It was about the size of a football! Look just above the center for the eye.
