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.

UnNatural Colour! The colours and shapes under the sea are amazing. This Hot Pink Frogfish sure stood out when moving but blended in almost perfectly in the sponges. So strange to see an ambush hunter hidingout with such a loud outfit:)

This fish was less than 1 inch and it's a very moving subject, always darting around.
