I was very fortunate to see these two Black-Saddled Tobies spiraling upward in a mating ritual. I got a sequence of about a dozen shots before the action ended. Dauin, Philippines.

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.
