On my last day of diving, I was set up for macro. 100+ feet away I saw a turtle who looked right at me and began swimming toward me. I waited and hoped I could at least manage a shot of his head. I was lucky, the only shot I got was this one.

Greysby can be skittish creatures at best. But this one held still for me to take a shot of him rather close up (I had a macro lens on, so close was my only option.)

Sharpnosed Pufferfish - these are everywhere in Roatan in the month of May. I love their colors, but it is hard to shoot them, since they flit from place to place so quickly.

on my way back from Neman's Wall to the Prince Albert where our boat was tied up, I noticed this scorpionfish. Since I had the FE lens on, I decided to try and do a close focus/wide angle shot with him as the subject.

Brain coral - I love the canyons and movement in this coral. While I was focusing this little goby jumped into the picture.

When I saw this mantis shrimp I decided to try and entice him out of his hole and take a shot...in heavy surge. I stayed with him for about 5 minutes and finally got this. I never could get him to come all the way out.
