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.

Fluorescence! A goby glows brightly on brain coral. I shot this using Nightsea filters: the fluorescence is excited by the blue light emitted through my strobes and then recorded through the Nightsea filter over my macro port.

A transitioning French Angelfish races across a coral reef. I photographed this scene with a slow-shutter speed while panning. This enabled me to show the speed while freezing the fish in action.

"Shooting for the Sky"
This Eagle Ray was begging to have his photo taken. Some days it all just goes your way and those are the days that take your experience to the next level.

Gimme Shelter - As we drifted out to the end of a coral finger near Sand Chute in Grand Cayman, we were surprised to find this lobster taking a nap in the sponge. Fortunately I was shooting with an 8mm fisheye lens and could capture the moment.

Night Octopus! I came across this octopus on a night dive. It slid up against a wall of coral and spread itself wide. It changed colors and textures repeatedly while I took this photograph.

This Eagle Ray let me get so close to him. We were swimming out off the wall in the blue water, which allowed me to achieve a blackout background.

"Perfect Fit" Gaudy Clown Crabs seem to like Grand Cayman this fall - we saw at least one on every dive. This tiny guy had found a perfect home in a Purple Vase Sponge. Shot with Oly EM1 60mm Macro Lens dual strobes.
