I challenge myself to get a shot of these little guys with the mouth open (showing teeth) and with the reflection of the strobes in the eye. This is an uncropped image, with minimal editing.

I took this in Bonaire the first week of November. I did crop this, but just to see how sharp and crisp this was.

This was taken at the end of the dive on One Thousand Steps. This tiny eel (head not bigger than my thumb) was almost directly under the boat.

This little guy was quite shy and it took a bit of a wait for him to become comfortable with the bubble-monster. But when he did, I was able to get this shot (after about 15 tries that did not work out.(

Getting close to the end of our dive, I found this anchor (everyone else swam over it as if it wasn't there) and decided it was a good subject to get a sun ball into the picture. After about 10 shots, I got this one, which I really liked.

I spotted this trumpetfish hanging out over a reddish coloured sponge. I got as close as I could and waited hoping he would come out enough for a full head shot. After 5 minutes, I decided he wasn't so I did this eye-shot instead.

Angles
While in Bonaire I had time on the House Reef to experiment taking pictures of one my favorite subjects - Christmas Tree Worms. I tried this new angle and was pleased. This is straight from the camera. no crop, no edit (did add copyright.)

I was trying to get a face shot of a grouper when this French Angelfish decided to swim in front of my camera and pose. So I took the picture of her, and it turned out better than I expected.
