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

Portrait of a Moray Eel. I lucked into this shot when my right strobe was bumped out of position and lit behind some coral failing to light the right side of the frame. It was really lucky...love this shot!

I have no idea how I missed the Lion Fish when I was shooting, but I didn't see him until I loaded the photo. I hope they're aren't a lot more down there that I missed munching on the Silversides!
