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

"Hide & Seek" - No Photoshop, I had the strobe positioned to create shadow, thus showing only the face of the filefish. I was lucky to find this one pecking away at a purple gorgonian, providing a nice contrasting color.

I found this beautiful giant anemone on a shallow reef. It's a particularly gorgeous specimen for Grand Cayman. I waited for a diver to be in the right position, then clicked the shutter.
