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

"Face To Face"
Queen angelfish are normally quite skiddish, swimming off if a diver comes near. This one was eating a sponge and was more concerned with lunch than with me. I took this photograph when it momentarily looked up from the sponge.

"A Turtle In Motion Tends To Stay In Motion"
A hawksbill turtle races across a reef on the North Wall of Grand Cayman. I used a slow shutter speed and panning to track the turtle as it raced past.

"Pink Castle"
A secretary blenny keeps an eye out for lunch from its home in a pink sponge. I used a medium aperture to keep both the blenny and sponge "castle" in focus, and waited for the blenny to look upward to take this shot.

On a great drift dive, this beautiful turtle didn't seem at all leary of divers. Just doing his thing in Cozumel.

"Lace"
Look for a few seconds and watch the fish appear! A slender filefish--and its eye--is framed by a seafan. I floated gently into place to frame the eye, and positioned my strobe in order to backlight the fish and seafan.

"Seahorse Sponge"
With all the action of of capturing the amazing movements of this group of Silversides I couldn't help but see this Orange Elephant Ear sponge closely resembling a Sea Horse.

"Silver Rush"
Silversides rush over sponges on the North Wall. They arrive on Grand Cayman once a year...if we're lucky. They're amazing to photograph--racing in large packs to evade predators.
