A sailboat passes by Cayman Kai, on the North shore of Grand Cayman.  The really small white dots on the horizon line are dive boats on the North wall.  A beautiful place to dive.  A beautiful place to

Gold Lace nudibranch, Maui, Hawaii. Found just below a huge frog fish. Completely missed by the group who were distracted by the froggie. Once they moved on, and the dust settled, I mined a little gold.

Dont know what this is. Couldn't find it in any of the books. Beautiful coloring. Looks like a small stonefish/scorpionfish by its coloring. Shark nosed goby visible for size comparison. Help welcomed on ID'ing it. Grand Cayman.

As a rule, Photoshop's panorama function is easy to use and the results are very good. This time....not so good. This is the actual output. Maybe I spilled some wine on the computer?

Pederson's shrimp. Grand Cayman. Common, but after I looked at the shot topside, I saw the anemone in the background. Just managed to achieve a soft transillumination with the strobe that looks really nice.

Sharknose goby on coral. Love the "3D" effect of the coral and the depth of field.

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.
