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.

It is very common to find in Bonaire this school of Surgeon fish, but in this case what I like is the fact that the only white fish was right in the middle of the school.... pretty lucky!.

Pelagic Tunicate/I happened upon this strange, nearly translucent creature, called a Salp, during a safety stop while diving in the Caribbean. Luckily I was shooting macro with my Nikonos V, and always saved one frame, "just in case".
