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.

Right on the drop off to the lower reef, I found this rope sponge and got Zsuzsunna to pose for me above it with the boat in the background.

I challenge myself to get a shot of these little guys with the mouth open (showing teeth) and with the reflection of the strobes in the eye. This is an uncropped image, with minimal editing.

This was taken at the end of the dive on One Thousand Steps. This tiny eel (head not bigger than my thumb) was almost directly under the boat.
