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

"Ghost Ship"
Used a port extension ring with my fisheye dome and 10-17mm lens to give a forced vingnette.
Reminiscent of a ghostly passenger ship sailing through thick fog, the Ex-USS Kittiwake materializes in early-morning light.

These Mantas are moving quickly- on the edge of a current line, you have to give them some space and don't look through the viewfinder too long!
