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.

We swam with this big guy for almost an hour. He brushed up against me several times. It is believed he was hit by the ferry boat. You can see the scars on his back and a tear in the dorsal fin...Photo was taken with no strobe, Olympus 4040

Spot the Scorpion Fish! This chap was sitting on the bottom at 55ft blended in perfectly with the coral. He's about 1 ft. long I guess. Sealife DC600 w/strobe Grand Cayman as all my images are.

just look at this whip coral. It sits so comfortably in the frame and isolated by the negative background. Steven is producing some great shots these days!
