One of Eighteen. During one week of diving in Cozumel this summer, I had 18 different encounters with turtles! Hence the title.

Yellow Headed jawfish checking me out. I spent a bit of time slowly sneaking closer and closer to this fish's burrow...and was awarded with this shot.

This was my second attempt at the little critter. Did not fill the frame, but instead concentrated on sharpness of the image.

Another shot from the shore dive with Nina Baxa. She pointed this out, not much bigger than a pea, so I tried with my 60mm lens (no diopter) to fill the frame with the critter (so I could see what it was.)

on a shore dive with Nina Baxa I found these two flamingo tongues engaged, so I took a picture.

I saw these and thought that they would make a lovely photo, with the movement in the surge area they were growing in.

On top of the wheelhouse of the Doc Paulson wreck was a grouping of sponges that I found beautiful.
