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

"Flight" - When I photographed this Spanish hogfish I went for an artistic look: I used a slow shutter speed and waited until the fish was racing over of a field of jagged lettuce leaf coral to provide background texture.

The waterline and shark are natural, but the clouds were painted in for this (the sky was flat white).. I wanted to do some different things this year, and moving over/unders make really weird splits

Over/Under on the move- the water was calm enough for splits, but swimming with the shark causes some cool water lines and lots of misses.
