We were finishing our dive; as we turned to swim to our exit, we noticed several large lionfish emerging from the coral looking for dinner. I was able to wait long enough for the lionfish to smile at me and wave my buddy into place before surfacing.

Dead crab found floating on the surface at the bay of pigs, Cuba. Quite the shock when you are surfacing and this pops in front of your face!

Nikon d700,17mm,ISO 200, f14, 1/160sec. We were at 30ft, when I first noticed movement below me. Slowly, I turned around, inching along the sand hoping for a clear shot. This ray set off a storm, leaving me cleaning the sand out of my gear.

We swam with this big guy for almost an hour. He brushed up against me several times. It is believed he was hit by the ferry boat. You can see the scars on his back and a tear in the dorsal fin...Photo was taken with no strobe, Olympus 4040

This photo was taken in Cozumel in October 2008. The reefs seem to be in fine condition and the water clear as ever! These Yellow Tube Sponges are a highlight on Palancar Gardens.

I am used to diving the Asia Pacific region where anemones are very common, but in The Caribbean they are not so common so I shot this with a black background and was delighted with the colours the strobes brought out.

Elysia pratensis from the Cayman Islands. These little sea slugs are very rare in the Caribbean, so I was really lucky to spot this one.

Usually these French Angel Fish are very skittish but after ten minutes or so they got used to me and as they were really interested in eating a sponge they kept coming back to me. I settled down for a long wait and finally was rewarded.
