We were finishing our dive; as we turned to swim to our exit, we noticed several large lionfish emerging from the coral looking for dinner. I was able to wait long enough for the lionfish to smile at me and wave my buddy into place before surfacing.

Nikon d700,17mm,ISO 200, f14, 1/160sec. We were at 30ft, when I first noticed movement below me. Slowly, I turned around, inching along the sand hoping for a clear shot. This ray set off a storm, leaving me cleaning the sand out of my gear.

We swam with this big guy for almost an hour. He brushed up against me several times. It is believed he was hit by the ferry boat. You can see the scars on his back and a tear in the dorsal fin...Photo was taken with no strobe, Olympus 4040

"Perfect Fit" Gaudy Clown Crabs seem to like Grand Cayman this fall - we saw at least one on every dive. This tiny guy had found a perfect home in a Purple Vase Sponge. Shot with Oly EM1 60mm Macro Lens dual strobes.

This Eagle Ray let me get so close to him. We were swimming out off the wall in the blue water, which allowed me to achieve a blackout background.

I love interacting with Turtles mid water. Being able to include the texture of the surface and even the clouds on a clear day.
