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.

The anchor just in front of Calabas Reef in Bonaire. Great vis and calm water - the anchor found a good place to stay. Shot with a Canon 30D in an Ikelite housing and Sigma 15/2.8 fisheye.

The sailfin blennie male attract females by flashing his huge dorsal fin in a blink of an eye. An almost impossible job to get it in the picture.

Juvenile trunkfish. Cute black and yellow marbles almost impossible to get in focus...at least for me.
This shot looks like a satellite orbiting a planet to me. Which is why I left the backscatter in, since it contributed to the feeling.

Christmas Tree Worms are my favorite subject. You have to be very stealthy to get in close to them. This is not cropped with only backscatter removed.
