Tarpon entering grotto at dawn

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

"Fuzzy"
I wanted to emphasize the bright color eyes of this Roughhead Blenny so I used a wide open f/stop to achieve a narrow focus on his eyes.

I love the facial markings of the Sharpnose Puffer. Finding a curious subject is key for this type of image, as these guys can be quite timid.

"Freeze Frame"
This large Hawksbill literally swam up to me and stopped mid water. He posed for 10-15 seconds less than two feet away from me and then turned and calmly started swimming in the other direction.

"Basslet Smile"
A Portrait of a Fairy Basslet. A very color, but quick moving fish, so it becomes a challenge to get a subject to sit still long enough to focus. The vibrant color of the small Basslet makes it worth the wait.

"In the Trenches"
It is rare to find an Octopus during the day. Generally when we see a pile of empty Conch Shells, we assume there is a hiding eight legger some where close. This one in particular had curled himself up into a tight ball just inside

"Two Heads Are Better Than One!"- I found a coral head with a green moray face sticking out one side, and a super long tail winding out the other. Confident it wasn't a record-size eel, I waited a long while.My patience was rewarded with this image.

When I saw this shrimp holding its ground & posing against the sponge, I knew I had to take the photo as they are usually shy and keeps moving around to hide.

When you see the Sharks body coil up prepare to see the true speed and power of these beautiful animals. It only takes a split second for them to dart away out of sight.

A Spotted Eagle Ray trusting me enough to fly right over my head. I try to let the Rays come to me, as I feel the calmer you can stay the more inclined they will be to come in for a close look.

"Does He See Me"
This Blenny was very cooperative. I used the +10 Diopter for this shot, so was glad he trusted me enough to get the big rig right up on him for this shot.
