Kissing under the ocean. A couple of porcupine fish caught in the act! Taken in 60ft of water at 100ft distance with digital zoom. No wide angle. Turks & Caicos, at dive site called Eel Garden. Nice!

I saw this guy coming toward me, and I knew he would be gone in a flash when he sees me, so hid behind a coral head and he went right over me... and for those of you wondering... yes... I was holding my breath :P

Intricate coral stands, snow white sand and crazy clear water. Even if I didn't have a camera in my hands it'd still be a great trip.

Played almost the entire dive trying to get a picture of a school of fish without a diver in the background. I just want to jump back in after looking at the water in this picture.

Coral bommies dot most of the dive sites in Turks & Caicos. This one attracted my attention because of its shape and the beautifully colored purple rope sponges complimenting the typical azure blue of this part of the Caribbean.

Spinnyhead blenny is a tiny little blenny and a challenging photography subject. Found it in an empty hole of a coral from which it poked out its head. Took this photo during a dive in Grand Turk Island with a 105mm macro lens.
