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.

"Colorful Corner"
This is an out cropping on the dive site, Orange Canyon. When we find ourselves here with a slight current there is a clear boost in the amount of fish taking the opportunity to feed in the near water moving past.

I love finding schools of jacks in shallow water. Combining the texture on the surface, and using all the ambient light always bring together some pleasing images.

"Framed"
A flamingo tongue cowrie framed by the branches of a gorgonian. I pushed myself to create a unique photograph: lined up the cowrie thru the branches, positioned my strobes for backlight & used high shutter speed to black the background.

"Treasured Conditions"
Looking up from 120 ft. at Ghost Mountain and it was as crystal clear as I ever seen the water here. The diver is at about 15ft enjoying some of the best conditions I have ever experienced during February.

I've been developing a lighting technique, and I thought the mermaid statue at Sunset House would be a perfect subject to employ it. I'm pleased with the result 😀 No Photoshop.
