Banded Butterflyfish from Bonaire.
I was very happy to find this little juvenile Puddingwife (Halichoeres radiatus) in Bonaire.
A little Slender Filefish from Bonaire.
Juvenile Spotted Drum from Bonaire.
I found this little beauty - a juvenile Queen Angelfish - on Bonaire. It's about 3 cm in length.
From Bonaire - my first frogfish!
This little octopus on Bonaire was about the size of my hand. He was perfectly camouflaged against the sand and rubble, but his movement gave him away.

This is really up close an personal Jim
A lot of searching and a lot of luck to find this male Yellowhead Jawfish incubating eggs on Little Cayman Island, BWI. The eggs are just about to hatch.

A fantastic behavior shot Jim. Just the sort quality publications are looking for
Unidentified species of siphonophore, a fairly rare type of hydroid.
Shortfin Pipefish from Little Cayman. Nikon D200 and 105mm lens.
Bristlework crawling over a very rare Fingerprint Cyphoma. Although the Bristleworm is stinging the Cyphoma, I'm told by a marine biologist that it's just a defensive action.
