"The Beehive"
A sponge hangs out from a steep wall as divers pass overhead. If you look closely, you can see an arrow crab peeking out over the edge of the sponge.

That's a great shot. Nice work on the composition here. Underexposing the background was the key to this image.

"Just Beneath The Surface" Light rays stream down onto the Ex-USS Kittiwake from the surface, visible just above. Photographed using an extension ring with my wide-angle port for forced vignetting.

"Iguana In The Coral Garden"--Finally got a full-length fluorescent dive here on Grand Cayman! This bearded fireworm crawling across coral makes me think of an iguana in a garden. Photographed with a Nightsea fluorescent kit.

My second time ever photographing sharks and I can't wait to do it again! I positioned myself low on the reef to shoot up against the blue with color in the foreground.

"Ghost Ship"
Used a port extension ring with my fisheye dome and 10-17mm lens to give a forced vingnette.
Reminiscent of a ghostly passenger ship sailing through thick fog, the Ex-USS Kittiwake materializes in early-morning light.

I found this tiny banded coral shrimp on the Oro Verde shipwreck. To photograph it, I framed it within the piece of twisted metal hull where it was hiding. Shot with f/3.5 to focus on the body and blur the antennae.

"Why So Grumpy?"
When I first spotted this tobacco wrasse it had a tiny fish in its mouth. I followed it, planning to photograph the behavior. By the time I got off a shot, the meal was gone, and I was given THIS look. ; )

"Manatee On The Moon"
While photographing manatees, rain started pouring down: big thick drops plopping onto the surface and denting the water. I suspected the texture would make an interesting photograph.

"Tarpon Undercarriage": Photographed at Macabuca/Turtle Farm on Grand Cayman. I hovered in front and below the "Tarpon Cave" where they hang out during the day. Lying close to the sandy bottom I shot up against the blue and coral.
