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.

Tarpon entering grotto at dawn

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

Best viewed enlarged to see the full scene. I framed the flamingo tongue close to the dome and used one strobe to light it, then lit the reef in the background with the other strobe.

"Illumination" - There are lots of beautiful swim throughs in Cayman, but I wanted to photograph more than just blue light coming through the back. When I came upon this conch shell in one of the swim throughs, I saw the photo I'd been waiting for.

A coralscape taken on a dive site around the Northwest Side of Grand Cayman. It is not visited often due to weather, so a real treat for conditions like this.

That's a great shot. Nice work on the composition here. Underexposing the background was the key to this image.
