A lizard proudly poses atop the coral overlooking Conch Point along the West side of Grand Cayman. This little guy really knew how to strike a pose.

An arrow crab and his roomies, the brittle stars, living in a sponge. Kinda has the whole "Sponge Bob" theme. Managed to get my 105 Nikon to focus on them and a strobe on them, as well.

Chris Alpers, our divemaster, used a magnifying glass for us to view this little guy. Inset shows a magnified view. I think this is a Chelidonura berolina. Input welcome.

Hanging with the divemaster doing a safety stop. He blew bubble-rings. The rings floated up and crossed the line holding a "sausage". As they rolled up, they wound up the line. Way cool.

A kaliedoscopic imagemade from sponges and fish scales. The saturation was then bumped up. I grew up in the 70's and would have proudly hung this on the wall for viewing under the black light. Physchadelic man!

Anchor seen in Turks and Caicos while diving aboard the Aggressor live aboard. Popeye would be proud, although the heart-shaped encrustation might detract from the "manliness" a bit. ( insert Popeye laugh here.)
