The beginning of an amazing daylight dive around St Andrews jetties in PC Beach, Fl
This Southern stingray had just settled in the sand. I took a few close-up shots and signalled to my buddy to go, then remembered the rule "Get close. When you are close enough get closer." So I turned back for one last shot. This one.
Leaving Hilma Hooker wreck in Bonaire, caught friend's son cruising the reef. His body language speaks the beauty of diving. (removed distracting fellow divers from frame)
Mermaid inspiration
Did you know that the yellow boxfish (Ostracion cubicus) can be found in reefs throughout the Pacific Ocean and Indian Ocean as well as the south eastern Atlantic Ocean? And that It reaches a maximum length of 45 centimetres (18 in)?

A grouper hanging over the reef, checking out its reflection, Jardines de la Reina, Cuba. Did you know that this particular species can easily reach 1 meter and weigh over 100 kgs?
I really feel you get a sense of just how prehistoric this animal is from the underwater Photo. Did you know that males can reach lenghts of 6.0 m (20ft) and weigh up to 900 kgs (2000 lb)? This photo was taken in Jardines de La Reina, Cuba.
Final RoundThrough to 2018 awards final round judging
Lionfish on the tropical and colorful reef in the Caribbean! Did you know these fish have venomous spikes and are dangerous for divers and fishermen?
a stripped marlin
Sharknado- what can I say, except that I used up all my adrenaline on this one dive.
Capturing an over under is difficult with a heavy housed camera, so I balanced the housing on my head to get this shot. Call me crazy. It was only way to do it.

Did you know that Goliath Groupers can weigh up to 360 kgs and that they only reach maturity around 180 kgs?
This grouper was photographed in Cuba and was very inquisitive, as almost all groupers. I really feel like it is posing for the camera.
