"Out in the Open"
A Gaudy Clown Crab poses out in the open on a Purple Vase Sponge. Generally I find this guys tucked away into a hole in the coral/sponge, but it is always a treat to find one out and about.

"Curious"
These aren't always the most cooperative subjects. After taking a couple of shots with just the 100mm, I decided to try the +10 Diopter. Luckily this guys was holding his ground and let me get extremely close.

"The Queen"
The colors of the Queen Angel Fish are so vibrant. It isn't very often they will allow you to get close enough for a face on portrait. I think the Turtle eating right beside this one gave it a reason to stick around.

Fluorescence! This is so exciting! Using Nightsea filters to photograph, I discovered that the eyes of a banded coral shrimp fluoresce a vibrant green. I used a small aperture to focus only on the eyes. The coral it's on also fluoresced.

"Babylon"
This massive deep sea pinnacle is without a doubt one of the most prestigious dive sites in Cayman. It is situated on the far North East side of the island making it a long way from anywhere. It is always a treat to descend into the depths

"Dancing Turtle"
The Hawksbill literally swam up and stopped right on top of me. It didn't touch me and I didn't touch it, but the encounter will last in my memories and with this photograph.

While swimming out for a shore dive at sunset, I asked my friend to pose for me. I balanced one strobe on top of my head to give her face fill light, and placed the other strobe under the water to illuminate her tank and octo.
