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

I set my strobes in position to light just the front of this very long tube sponge. All of the sudden, this graysby swam up from the far back of the tube and checked me out, then just as quickly disappeared back down into deep recesses of the sponge.

'Toothless Dinosaur'
I just got back from an evening date with this rather attractive Spotted Snake Eel (Ophichthus ophis) in Saint Lucia. After about half an hour it got tired of my company and yawned...which made me happy.

Juvenile Boxfish. This boxfish was bobbing and around coral and sponges, but nothing that was an attractive background. So I dialed up my aperture to f/3.2 to make a soft background.

This squirrel fish stayed just long enough to snap this shot. I have this on my wall, and I can't walk past it without getting caught up in his eyes everytime! This was in John's place diving in Roatan on my birthday.

A diver models for me inside the Prince Albert shipwreck in Roatan, Honduras. I attached a strobe to the back of her tank and had her hold a Triggerfish sensor to make the strobe fire behind her, lighting up the background.
