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.

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

Flamingo Tongue Nudibranch (just like saying that!) on a sea fan at about 55 ft. Sealife DC600 w/strobe. Love finding these guys - normally for me they are on branch coral, but this chap was fanning himself.

Coral Scene in Bonaire. The lack of strobe lighting was not intentional, but I still think this shot came out well. DX-1G with wide angle lens.

I took this shot with my DC 500 but my strobes did not fire so I have adjusted the exposure to create this photo and adjusted the saturation. Comments are welcome......... This photo was taken in Cozumel during a trip in 2006.
