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

On a great drift dive, this beautiful turtle didn't seem at all leary of divers. Just doing his thing in Cozumel.

"Lace"
Look for a few seconds and watch the fish appear! A slender filefish--and its eye--is framed by a seafan. I floated gently into place to frame the eye, and positioned my strobe in order to backlight the fish and seafan.

"Silver Rush"
Silversides rush over sponges on the North Wall. They arrive on Grand Cayman once a year...if we're lucky. They're amazing to photograph--racing in large packs to evade predators.

"Take Me To Your Leader"
A graysby fish stares menacingly at the camera. No Photoshop, I set up my strobe lighting for a creepy effect, to go with the look I was getting.

A diver explores the engine room of the ex-USS Kittiwake. I used a slave strobe and placed it so it would burst light through the metal structure in front of the diver.
