Last year I posted a jawfish with eggs that were about to hatch. This is the same jawfish shot a few days earlier just after the eggs were laid. From Little Cayman Island. Nikon D200 with 105mm lens.

Southern Stingrays cruising over a shallow sand bar to the North of Grand Cayman.  The split is part photoshop manipulated to correct some dome splashing in the heavy swell.

Tarpon entering grotto at dawn

During daytime silversides hide in caverns, swim-throughs, grottos and wrecks. As dawn settles the predators follow them.

It is always crazy to see what these little Blenny's look like under light and a macro lens. Most of them boast some amazing color and brilliant patt;erns making them an awesome subject.

I've been experimenting with wide apertures when shooting my macro images lately. Here, I focused on this spotted cleaner shrimp's eye, letting everything else in front and behind blur.

On my last day of diving, I was set up for macro. 100+ feet away I saw a turtle who looked right at me and began swimming toward me. I waited and hoped I could at least manage a shot of his head. I was lucky, the only shot I got was this one.
