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.

Scorpionfish let you get very close to focus- here about two inches from the dome. Red always surprises me when I see the preview- this fish was about 10 inches long.
