Greysby can be skittish creatures at best.  But this one held still for me to take a shot of him rather close up (I had a macro lens on, so close was my only option.)

On my last day of diving, I was set up for macro.  100+ feet away I saw a turtle who looked right at me and began swimming toward me.  I waited and hoped I could at least manage a shot of his head.  I was lucky, the only shot I  got was this one.

On Tuesday we went out in the afternoon hoping to find the manatees - we did not. However, while in Three Sisters Springs I spotted this root system and some fain sunbeams, It was so beautiful.

"Serenity"
Yesterday I got this shot of a manatee - little did I know that this would be the only day that we would find any in the springs. Today we found one outside the springs, but in very murky water
