I found this beautiful giant anemone on a shallow reef. It's a particularly gorgeous specimen for Grand Cayman. I waited for a diver to be in the right position, then clicked the shutter.

8mm no crop. Flathead Crocodilefish color up when they lay on plants and corals, on sand and rock they go to white and black. Finding one perched up high was a lucky treat. 5D Mark2 in Ikelite housing
