"Little Big Logger"
By far the youngest Loggerhead I have encountered. Still by no means is this a small turtle. Its shell was still roughly 3ft. in length.

No Photoshop. One of the MOST incredible days ever on Grand Cayman. I exposed so the white sand slightly overexposed the image. I pressed down onto the sand looking up so the pink of the conch reflected on the surface with the bright blue sky.

A Hawksbill Turtle swims along the edge of the wall on the West Side of Grand Cayman. Very rarely do you not encounter one of these extremely friendly turtles, especially when diving the west side.

"Permit Pack"
A very rare sighting for me here in Cayman. This is by far the biggest school of Permit I have encountered. After this initial shot, they swirled around me 3 times at rapid speed and then disappeared into the blue.

Two squid at the surface with the sky and clouds above them.
I spent 1 1/2 hrs with them until they warmed up to me enough so I could photograph beneath them with the sky and clouds above.

A stingray swims below waves at sunrise. The pinks and oranges of sunrise lit-water sheet off my dome port while a stingray swims beneath the waves.

"Turtle Wave"
By getting out in front of a turtle you give it the choice to either swim around you or simply just keep swimming. I find calm breathing and nice subtle movements encourage great encounters.
