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.

Diver and elephant ear sponge. I like this version with the legs apart. For me, the split legs add a sort of whimsy to the photo, like the diver is in flight. Plus, rules are made to be broken. wink

"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.

"Submariner" - Yellow spnges frame an imposing barracuda. I was going for a strong graphic image, so dialed up the shutter speed for contrast and to increase the silhouette of the barracuda and ledge it was under.
