Sailfin Blenny that was living in remnants of a dead sea urchin, when I blew this up, I found what looked like two eggs inside his house.
This image was taken at Devils' Grotto. I had hoped that a tarpon was coming through the hole in the silversides, but I got this Bar Jack instead. I was happy with it anyway.
A gorgeous sponge on the wreck of the Doc Poulson.
A banded Butterfly fish stopped swimming to check out my port...I think she saw her reflection in there.
Flamingo Tongues in love
Lettuce Leaf Sea Slug - the blue/green coloring is so very beautiful
Stingray in flight
Sexy Shrimp peering out at me, as if to say "Peek a boo!"
It took me quite a few tries to get a good image of this spinyhead blenny.
Juvenile trunkfish. Cute black and yellow marbles almost impossible to get in least for me.
This shot looks like a satellite orbiting a planet to me. Which is why I left the backscatter in, since it contributed to the feeling.
Christmas Tree Worms are my favorite subject. You have to be very stealthy to get in close to them. This is not cropped with only backscatter removed.
'From out of the dark...'
I spent some time waiting for this little speckled eel to come out far enough for a good image.
I was working on trying to make his spots turn into bokeh. Managed it at 5.6
The Final Frontier
Wreck of the Doc Poulson, growth forward of the wheel house.
Moody Froggy
Grays by can be quite interesting to photograph,especially when they let you get close with the macro lens.
I love this little rough head blenny.
Taken at Aquarium of the Americas - Sand Tiger Shark
This Banded Butterflyfish just seemed love watching himself in my port.

Tarpon - Devil's Grotto
This Christmas Tree Worm was a rather ugly brownish color when I first spotted it. But, when lit it because this beautiful red/white color and was breathtaking. This is without a dopter.
King of the Mountain
I love social feather dusters and in Roatan,they are brown to yellow. These were the yellow ones. Shooting then in surge is a challenge, but one I love trying to do it.
