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.

I was diving on Buddy'S Reef in Bonaire shooting with my Canon 5D MK II and Canon 1:28L IS ISM 100mm macro lens. This tiny Trunkfish was swimming around me, lips puckered as if ready to give me a kiss.

Green Turtle. It is very common to get close to sea turtles at the Salt Pier in Bonaire. At the end of almost each dive I can photograph a turtle, but lately are not seen very often and the sea bottom looks like a desert...something is changing?

Overunder shot. A brown Caribbean Pelican is resting on its baits after a few strikes. Just once a year happens that a big ball of scads get close to the shores of Bonaire attracting many predators.

It is very common to find in Bonaire this school of Surgeon fish, but in this case what I like is the fact that the only white fish was right in the middle of the school.... pretty lucky!.
