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.

Spirobranchus giganteus
This was one of the most delicately coloured ones I have ever seen. Just a hint of peachy-apricot to it.

this was taken in November in Bonaire...I thought the pattern on this Cyphoma gibbosum was quite unusual...and the contrast to the lavender rope sponge it was on was t me, the best.
