Kissing under the ocean. A couple of porcupine fish caught in the act! Taken in 60ft of water at 100ft distance with digital zoom. No wide angle. Turks & Caicos, at dive site called Eel Garden. Nice!

This big creature might have an eye on me! This photo of a Caribbean Reef Shark was taken off Nassau last Saturday. No dive trip to the Bahamas would be complete without seeing sharks.

Play Cape Fur Seal. Although still a youngster, I was surprised at how much wear and tears its teeth already shown at such a young age.

Swept in-shore from the deep by up-welling currents, this Root-mouthed jellyfish is on its last few breaths. Its a long and treacherous path it was swept along as its battered body is testament too.

Although not so rare, these Chinese Klipfish is not often spotted thanks to their excellent camouflage. This juvenile was luckily spotted on this singularly coloured sea fan.

Its no mystery that the underwater world is a treasure cove filled with colour kaleidoscopes not found elsewhere on Earth. Here looking at a close-up of an anemone.
