I took a very rare photo of a blanket octopus. These are nearly impossible to find as they mainly stay in the gulfstream.  This was in about 30 feet of water off Key Largo.

Usually sandbar sharks are extremely elusive as they are shy, however, on this particular dive, the sandbars were coming in HOT! This female came right up on my dome along with her entourage.

This toothy American alligator was very tolerant of me and my camera, allowing me to get quite close to obtain this shot in the Florida Everglades.
