Last year I posted a jawfish with eggs that were about to hatch. This is the same jawfish shot a few days earlier just after the eggs were laid. From Little Cayman Island. Nikon D200 with 105mm lens.

Tarpon entering grotto at dawn

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

I prepared my camera with a fisheye lens, but with my extension ring on the port to create a false vignette. I was hoping for some larger marine life to utilize this effect. Perfect for when a goliath grouper--unusual for Cayman--showed up!

A colorful goby models for the camera atop star coral. I used a very shallow depth of field to focus only on the goby's eyes, and to make the rest of its translucent body blur into the backgruound.

When you are the biggest creature cruising around at any given moment you have the right of way. This large Loggerhead Turtle just kept his chosen path and it was up to me to snap this shot and roll out of the way.
