The USS-Kittiwake is one of my favorite dives. Every time I descend on it, the variety of light, sealife, conditions... inspire a photo!

'Mouthful'...A blenny hunting bloodworms by night. This was a special capture as the blenny was lightning fast, in order to get the bloodworm in its mouth required preemptive firing at just the right moment! Luckily one came out just right smile

Adorable roughhead blenny!
I used f/2.8 to focus on just the blenny's eyes and cirri (horns), making them pop against the background.
