We were underwater at about 45ft. at a cleaning station waiting for what seemed forever. Then after 40 minutes out of the blue comes this huge Manta flying gracefully overhead. This was the first Manta we had ever seen and Wow! what a beauty.

She is under the rather large anemone just hanging out. She kept peeking out to see if I was still there. Later, a juvenile false clown fish came out from behind her to see what was going on. It turned out, she was just protecting her young.

A rainbow of color on this Parrotfish. It was just hanging there drifting back and forth on a little coral head. It did not seem to mind that I was there or that I was taking pictures.

Porcelain crabs are not that big. This little guy was sitting in his anemone having a great time...just fishin'. I love the look on his face. It looks like he is slurping up the plankton he is fishing for.

Hermit crab...this little guy was scooting across the bottom. When he saw me and my camera, he stopped so I could get a couple of shots off. He then took off and was headed as fast as he could to somewhere.
