I am scared of me !!!!!!!!!!!!
I think that this Tiger Moray has a very amusing expression. Maybe it comes from closing his mouth with that set of teeth.

Tenerife under and above the surface.
A try with a over/under shot on snorkel. Photo is taken at Punta Teno, the very North Western point of the Island. The coastline is the beautiful cliffs of Los Gigantes. It is really worth a visit.

Close to the dome !
Another friendly green turtle on the El Puertito divesite on Tenerife. It came very close, so the strobe didn't lighten up the eyes. But I kind of like it anyway.
