Parrotfish Mouth, with shrimp perched on his nose--Little Cayman (Nikon F4, 60mm Macro, Aquatica housing, Ikelite strobes, Velvia)
Spotted Eagle Ray. Dpotted near the surface on Bloody Bay Wall at Cayman Brac.
This Scarlet-Striped Cleaning Shrimp was happy to give my wife a free manicure. And please, no cracks about the size of her engagement ring - she was happy with it 22 years ago, and she still is!
Alien Invasion. Found clinging to the roof of a cave entrance on Cayman Brac. A number were reflected against an overhead air pocket making a dramatic effect.
Red Snapping Shrimp (also called Pistol Shrimp). It takes a lot of patience to get this little guy to come out of his corkscrew anemone, but it's worth the wait. He'll even give you a free manicure if you're lucky!
Gray Angelfish. Roaming about the deck of the Oro Verde off Grand Cayman.
A huge Hogfish feeding in the sand. Nikon D200 with 60mm lens.
The oral disk and mouth of a Corkscrew Anemone. Nikon D200 with 60mm lens.
Beautiful Dreamer. Image taken at Bloody Bay Wall of Little Cayman.
This little Pipehorse was a real thrill! They're pretty rare, they're camouflaged very well, and they don't move around much. Nikon D200 with 60mm lens.
This juvenile Yellowtail Damselfish was one of the toughest photographs I've ever taken. They're very small (2 cm) and they just flit into view for a second or two. Nikon D200 with 60mm lens.
Grunts taking a siesta
Arrow Blenny (2 cm). These tiny fish are tough to spot, but they're great fun to watch as they flick their tail and dart out to spear little shrimp and other morsels. Nikon D200 with 60mm lens.
Blue Chromis are a very common fish in the Caribbean, but I love to photograph them. Notice the tiny tendrils on the tail. Nikon D200 with 60mm lens.
Blackbar Soldierfish w/ Cymothoid Isopod. Wouldn't you feel a little self-conscious with an isopod on your head?
I think this little Tobaccofish was mezmerized by his reflection in my macro port. Nikon D200 with 105mm lens.
This idyllic view is from our favorite dive resort on Little Cayman, looking over South Hole Sound toward the barrier reef.
Inquisitive sea turtle near the surface. Image taken on Bloody Bay Wall of Little Cayman.
This little Diamond Blenny is one of the most colorful fish on the reef, usually found in anemones.
Nikon D200 with 60mm lens.
'GRAY LADY DOWN' Another in my 'Fish Portraits from Around the World' series. Always an interesting subject - the colour makes a challenging shot. Housed Nikon F; Niko Mar III; 24mm Nikkor Lens. Enjoy!
This little Yellowface Pikeblenny wasn't too shy about posing. Little Cayman, BWI. Nikon D70.
Bronze Medal Bronze Medal 2006

a well worked critter shot James
A Siphonophore, relative of a jellyfish, and one of the stranger creatures of the sea.
Grouper in cleaning posture. Image taken on Bloody Bay Wall, Little Cayman in May, 2006.
Scallop with encrusting sponge. Even though the scallop can't move, it's alive and doing well.
The Blue-Ring Sea Hare is pretty rare, and this is the first one that I've seen. About 2 cm.
Nikon D70 with 60mm lens.
Come on give me a kiss!

Hey Hotlips!
Trumpetfish are common in the Caymans, but this was a head-on shot, giving a little different view.
Nikon D70 with 60mm lens.
