Tarpon entering grotto at dawn

During daytime silversides hide in caverns, swim-throughs, grottos and wrecks. As dawn settles the predators follow them.

"Iguana In The Coral Garden"--Finally got a full-length fluorescent dive here on Grand Cayman! This bearded fireworm crawling across coral makes me think of an iguana in a garden. Photographed with a Nightsea fluorescent kit.

"Ghost Ship"
Used a port extension ring with my fisheye dome and 10-17mm lens to give a forced vingnette.
Reminiscent of a ghostly passenger ship sailing through thick fog, the Ex-USS Kittiwake materializes in early-morning light.
