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.

At first, when I took the shot, I thought the two shrimp were cleaning the parrotfish, but zooming in on the pic, it looks more like the shrimp on the right was eating the one on the left because the head & eyes are missing! Is this possible?

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.

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

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!

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.
