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.

While in Anilao, I decided to shoot a tunicate and play with light. This is a clear tunicate with the strobe light just barely touching it, making it look pale blue.
