Sharpnosed Pufferfish - these are everywhere in Roatan in the month of May.  I love their colors, but it is hard to shoot them, since they flit from place to place so quickly.

on my way back from Neman's Wall to the Prince Albert where our boat was tied up, I noticed this scorpionfish.  Since I had the FE lens on, I decided to try and do a close focus/wide angle shot with him as the subject.

Brain coral - I love the canyons and movement in this coral.  While I was focusing this little goby jumped into the picture.

Remora hitching a ride on a whale shark's tail. I wonder if this one is more of a thrill seeker since he went for the craziest place instead of just hanging out on the body, or pectoral fins like his buddies!

The fish eggs that the whale sharks are feasting upon are very visible going into this shark's mouth.
What has to be very irritating is the remora that is latched onto it's freakin' tonsils!!!! Man, that makes my throat tickle!!!

This Whale Shark kept her eye on me as she was curving by with a photographer trying to keep up. It was a great moment watching her eye swivel and view me with a knowing look

Those who know me well, know my favourite colour is grey.
I'm a big lover of the dapple grey horses for their patterned coats.

While in Isla Mujeres to swim with Whale Sharks we lucked into a wonderful sharp eyed dive master who found some Green Sea Turtles mating and helped us go into stealth mode to quietly sneak up and observe. So awesome!!!
