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

This banded coral shrimp was buried in the lilac vase sponge and I had to contort myself to capture the image. I love the way the sponge looks like soft fabric.

The North Wall of Grand Cayman is spectacular! At depth, everything loses color and these sponges appeared a muted greyish-pink. I knew they had to be more colorful. A burst from my strobes revealed the stunning, bright purple.
