Cirque de Soleil in PNG. Kids in PNG don't have parks with swings & slides to play on, and the stern rope from the boat provides them hours of entertainment.

The Panda Clownfish is the most fierce when it comes to protecting it's home. I've had one draw blood from my knuckles when I got too close. Small fish with a big fish attitude!

This was a tough shot because it was moving almost 10 meters a minute! Heart pounding stuff! Ok, that's a lie, I couldn't think of anything exciting to say about taking a picture of a nudibranch... and just checking if anybody actually reads this smile

Nikonos 5, 1:1 macro frame. Saw this one in my light on my way back to the stern after night dive. I was had 1 frame left, and tried for almost 10 min before I could get him in the frame, and this was the result. One shot, or more like one lucky shot

Shark Entourage. Not sure what the deal is here, I guess the fish feel safe as long as they can see the shark, and the best way to keep it in their vision is to stick with it.

BlackJack B17 Bomber wreck. 160' depth
Shot with Magic Filter. And then white balanced post as I could not white balance at that depth b/c of lack of light.

Two of these nudi's were chasing each other, guess it was mating season. They were moving pretty fast, so I managed to get a few different angle shots of them.

I was laying on my back in 20ft, taking shots of the kids. I placed my camera on my chest to blow an air ring. This kid totally caught me off guard by swimming down through the air ring. I just grabbed the camera and snapped.
