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

Hunter & prey at Devil's Grotto
some weeks ago the dive sit and grottoes were severely damaged by a container ship grounded on the reef. Hoping the coral can be saved and the site restored for future visits of the silvery schools of fish!

Tarpon in the Sun - we were diving Macabuca or Turtle Reef in Grand Cayman. I waited under the out-cropping to get a pic of the tarpon. Edited color to show how I envisioned he would look as the sun set over West Bay.

Getting images of Turtles on or near the surface takes respect. You respect the animal and earn its trust and in turn it will be reciprocated with awesome encounters and images to save the memory.
