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.

"Sand Driftin"
I love the separation the sand gives the Shark. They blend in so well with the reef, so I was very excited to see her cruise over this sand patch.

Caribbean Reef Squid
This is the actual color! The squid was changing color as it swam forward and back, checking me out. It was moving up and down through the water column as well, enabling me to get this angle.

A large Triple Fin Blenny. I generally see these guys on Brain Coral so it was nice to find one on a different back drop.

"Out in the Open"
A Gaudy Clown Crab poses out in the open on a Purple Vase Sponge. Generally I find this guys tucked away into a hole in the coral/sponge, but it is always a treat to find one out and about.

"Curious"
These aren't always the most cooperative subjects. After taking a couple of shots with just the 100mm, I decided to try the +10 Diopter. Luckily this guys was holding his ground and let me get extremely close.

"The Queen"
The colors of the Queen Angel Fish are so vibrant. It isn't very often they will allow you to get close enough for a face on portrait. I think the Turtle eating right beside this one gave it a reason to stick around.

Fluorescence! This is so exciting! Using Nightsea filters to photograph, I discovered that the eyes of a banded coral shrimp fluoresce a vibrant green. I used a small aperture to focus only on the eyes. The coral it's on also fluoresced.

"Babylon"
This massive deep sea pinnacle is without a doubt one of the most prestigious dive sites in Cayman. It is situated on the far North East side of the island making it a long way from anywhere. It is always a treat to descend into the depths

"Dancing Turtle"
The Hawksbill literally swam up and stopped right on top of me. It didn't touch me and I didn't touch it, but the encounter will last in my memories and with this photograph.
