Last year I posted a jawfish with eggs that were about to hatch. This is the same jawfish shot a few days earlier just after the eggs were laid. From Little Cayman Island. Nikon D200 with 105mm lens.

Tarpon entering grotto at dawn

During daytime silversides hide in caverns, swim-throughs, grottos and wrecks. As dawn settles the predators follow them.

"Lace"
Look for a few seconds and watch the fish appear! A slender filefish--and its eye--is framed by a seafan. I floated gently into place to frame the eye, and positioned my strobe in order to backlight the fish and seafan.

With all the action of of capturing the amazing movements of this group of Silversides I couldn't help but see this Orange Elephant Ear sponge closely resembling a Sea Horse.

Hunting
This image was taken at Devils' Grotto. I had hoped that a tarpon was coming through the hole in the silversides, but I got this Bar Jack instead. I was happy with it anyway.

"Silver Rush"
Silversides rush over sponges on the North Wall. They arrive on Grand Cayman once a year...if we're lucky. They're amazing to photograph--racing in large packs to evade predators.

"Take Me To Your Leader"
A graysby fish stares menacingly at the camera. No Photoshop, I set up my strobe lighting for a creepy effect, to go with the look I was getting.

A diver explores the engine room of the ex-USS Kittiwake. I used a slave strobe and placed it so it would burst light through the metal structure in front of the diver.

Starfish are seen both through the surface of the water and below. No Photoshop: I used my wide angle dome port for this shot, carefully angling my camera housing in order to get both the over and under water views.

A two claw shrimp peers out from a purple vase sponge. This kind of shrimp is a rare find in Cayman! I used a shallow depth of field to focus just on the shrimp's eyes.
