Lovely little sharpnose pufferfish decided to swim towards me, so I had to take a photo of it.

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.

I was swimming along the wall, in the surge when I stopped to look at a seahorse. As I began to take a picture of the seahorse, this little guy swam up and posed for two shots. This was the one I liked best. Very inquisitive little guy.

'The scuba diver dives to look around, whilst a freediver dives to look inside. It was a real joy to share time in the water with such a young spirit as he gracefully moved through the water on one breath.'
