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

A tiny slender filefish hides in a gorgonian--no crop. I spent my entire dive actively searching for a slender filefish. I was all the way to the next dive site when I finally found this one.

A baby nurse shark tucked inside a colorful overhang. This little cutie was only about a foot long! It was so inspiring to see this early stage of life on the reef.
