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

Spinnyhead blenny is a tiny little blenny and a challenging photography subject. Found it in an empty hole of a coral from which it poked out its head. Took this photo during a dive in Grand Turk Island with a 105mm macro lens.

'Down Boy'. Rowdy tiger sharks occasionally require a calming influence and a gentle reminder to play nicely.

Perfect timing and positioning! The one thing that would have bumped this up to 1st place was if the Turtle happened to open his mouth and bite the sun spot :) But hey, you can't control nature!
