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.

The anchor just in front of Calabas Reef in Bonaire. Great vis and calm water - the anchor found a good place to stay. Shot with a Canon 30D in an Ikelite housing and Sigma 15/2.8 fisheye.

Getting close to the end of our dive, I found this anchor (everyone else swam over it as if it wasn't there) and decided it was a good subject to get a sun ball into the picture. After about 10 shots, I got this one, which I really liked.

I spent a little bit of time with this blenny trying to get him to be confident in my presence. After about 10 minutes I got this shot.

I spotted this trumpetfish hanging out over a reddish coloured sponge. I got as close as I could and waited hoping he would come out enough for a full head shot. After 5 minutes, I decided he wasn't so I did this eye-shot instead.

Angles
While in Bonaire I had time on the House Reef to experiment taking pictures of one my favorite subjects - Christmas Tree Worms. I tried this new angle and was pleased. This is straight from the camera. no crop, no edit (did add copyright.)

I was trying to get a face shot of a grouper when this French Angelfish decided to swim in front of my camera and pose. So I took the picture of her, and it turned out better than I expected.

If you’re diving Bonaire and are looking for something to do for the surface day before you fly visit the Donkey Sanctuary. Buy some carrots and you are now their best friend, great cause that’ll give you a warm and fuzzy.
