We were finishing our dive; as we turned to swim to our exit, we noticed several large lionfish emerging from the coral looking for dinner. I was able to wait long enough for the lionfish to smile at me and wave my buddy into place before surfacing.

Nikon d700,17mm,ISO 200, f14, 1/160sec. We were at 30ft, when I first noticed movement below me. Slowly, I turned around, inching along the sand hoping for a clear shot. This ray set off a storm, leaving me cleaning the sand out of my gear.

We swam with this big guy for almost an hour. He brushed up against me several times. It is believed he was hit by the ferry boat. You can see the scars on his back and a tear in the dorsal fin...Photo was taken with no strobe, Olympus 4040

I photographed what is traditionally a macro subject using wide-angle for a different look. A single Christmas tree worm is illuminated atop star coral. I used a high SS to make the water dark blue, increasing contrast between xmas worm &background

"Like a Hawk"
No wonder we call them Hawksbill Turtles. Just before I took this image the Turtle was sprawled out over a sponge digging his sharp beak into it. Soon he used his front two fins to push himself upward while letting his beak tear off...

We've seen more and more curious moray eels as we dive Grand Cayman - likely seeking an easy meal of a lionfish from a diver. This guy swam around us checking us out and then settled into a small swim-thru to watch us as we finished our dive.
