Taken while I was wreck diving in the Philippines. The sea turtle came flying past me and I only had time to get one shot off and fortunately timing and positioning was right where its fins were completely spread out as if coming in for a landing.

Black Durgeon in Cozumel
Canon 5D3 w/ 8-15mm fisheye these fish are pretty hard to capture in Cozumel; the swift currents combined with their tendency to dive in a hole at any motion makes it quite a challenge!
