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 two claw shrimp peers out from a purple vase sponge. This kind of shrimp is a rare find in Cayman! I used a shallow depth of field to focus just on the shrimp's eyes.

Pelagic Tunicate/I happened upon this strange, nearly translucent creature, called a Salp, during a safety stop while diving in the Caribbean. Luckily I was shooting macro with my Nikonos V, and always saved one frame, "just in case".

A tiny spotted cleaner shrimp climbs on a warty corallimorph anemone. I lit the shrimp with one strobe, and lit the background with my second strobe to provide backlighting.
