While I tried to capture a shot of these juvenile squids near to the diving platform, a curious guest is watching me and wonders what the heck I am doing there ;-) The lights on top are reflections of my strobe lights on water surface.

This happens, if you have your 60mm macro lens prepared for a photo dive : Always the big buddies are coming by, then ;-) Anyway: I hope, that's the right category - close up shot of a common sea turtle ( caretta caretta ).

Horozbina. A 5 cm small buddy, who is usually extremly "nervous" and therefore difficult to shoot. If you are looking close enough, there are even in the mediterranean nice motives to find ;-)

The "Skydiver". Swimming with the camera below this small squid made the photo possible. I took it in 2009 in Kas-Antalya (Turkey)
