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

This Scorpion Fish was in the perfect spot for a straight on Portrait. These subjects are very cooperative and generally sit still, but finding them is the trick.

"The Den"
My favorite shot of the invasive Lion Fish. We are seeing less and less of this hungry fish on the dive sites, but sometime I just can't help but snag a couple shots of them, they are very photogenic.

A rare shot for me. After all the Slender File Fish that I have had in front of my lens, I dont know if I have ever seen one with it's mouth open.

We watched this Turtle surface, then headed into a swim through. As soon as I exited I looked up to find him heading straight for me. I quickly adjusted settings and pulled the shutter.
