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

A transitioning French Angelfish races across a coral reef. I photographed this scene with a slow-shutter speed while panning. This enabled me to show the speed while freezing the fish in action.

Gimme Shelter - As we drifted out to the end of a coral finger near Sand Chute in Grand Cayman, we were surprised to find this lobster taking a nap in the sponge. Fortunately I was shooting with an 8mm fisheye lens and could capture the moment.

Night Octopus! I came across this octopus on a night dive. It slid up against a wall of coral and spread itself wide. It changed colors and textures repeatedly while I took this photograph.
