Brain coral - I love the canyons and movement in this coral. While I was focusing this little goby jumped into the picture.

This is a new find for me in Cayman. I'm thinking it is a Long-tail Grass Shrimp.

When I saw this mantis shrimp I decided to try and entice him out of his hole and take a shot...in heavy surge. I stayed with him for about 5 minutes and finally got this. I never could get him to come all the way out.
