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

"Blue Eyes"
Orange Sided Gobe resting on a sponge. These guys are generally very timid, so being able to get so close to this one was a treat.

Caribbean Reef Squid
This is the actual color! The squid was changing color as it swam forward and back, checking me out. It was moving up and down through the water column as well, enabling me to get this angle.

"Does He See Me"
This Blenny was very cooperative. I used the +10 Diopter for this shot, so was glad he trusted me enough to get the big rig right up on him for this shot.

"Sand Driftin"
I love the separation the sand gives the Shark. They blend in so well with the reef, so I was very excited to see her cruise over this sand patch.

"Glow"
I noticed the interesting color of this sponge and new I wanted a shot. I was able to isolate my strobes onto just that sponge and the glowing sun behind the coral head gives this a very dramatic feel.
