Close encounter. Curious tiger shark and equally curious young diver.
Beautiful tiger shark fly-by in the Bahamas.
Young diver petting a lemon shark. The shark sat on the sea floor for several minutes and actually leaned in to be petted several times before swimming away.
Tiger sharks coming and going.
The eye of the tiger. These magnificent animals are as curious about us as we are about them.
Incoming predators on the prowl.
Young diver with photobomber. Awesome experience!
A young diver awed by a photobombing shark. What a wonderful dive!
Young diver interacting with a large school of curious Atlantic blue tang. They suddenly surrounded our group for no apparent reason.
Close encounter in the Bahamas.
A young diver (my granddaughter) couldn't be happier to be surrounded by sharks on Stuart Cove's shark dive in Nassau.
Two beautiful predators on the prowl in the Bahamas. We saw sharks on every dive in the Bahamas last week. Fantastic!
In the movie ‘Jaws’, the character Quint says, “The thing about a shark - it's got lifeless eyes, black eyes like a doll's eyes.” I don’t think so. This magnificent shark’s eyes look very alive, focused, and interested. Beautiful creatures!
Am I gorgeous or what? A well-camouflaged Hawaiian frog fish waiting for a meal to float by.
Diver cautiously approaching a beautiful but unwelcome invader in the Caribbean.
Can I help you? Hawaiian turtle under Mala pier.
Beautiful Hawksbill turtle in flight entertaining divers and snorkelers. This shot was taken on a spectacular shore dive in Maui, within 100 years of the beach.
Get out! Reclusive white tip reef shark, less than thrilled to have visitors, hiding under the rubble of Mala pier in Maui.
Ran into this beauty coming around a corner, just enough time for a focused photo. Magnificent animal! Great dive!
On a great drift dive, this beautiful turtle didn't seem at all leary of divers. Just doing his thing in Cozumel.
A very focused diver slowly ascending from the depths. He appears to have been on some sort of secret ops mission.
A very friendly hogfish hogging the camera.
Friendly sea otter just chillin' in the chilly waters of the Gulf of Alaska. Life is good when your belly is your dinner table.
A focused diver in good focus. Beautiful diving in Turks and Caicos.
A beautiful intruder in the Caribbean.
This majestic turtle followed us for some time and was not at all shy about having his picture taken.
Whoa! Where did that come from? Very friendly and curious hawksbill sea turtle joined our dive group for several minutes before swimming away.
