Green turtle and diver at El Puertito, Tenerife. Probably the friendliest turtles on the planet. Olympus E330, 8mm fisheye, single Ikelite DS125 strobe.

Just showing the image with the diver putting a hand on the turtle belly could give an politically wrong image. We literally had to (gently) push the turtles away from time to time. The turtles didn't seem to mind. El Puertito, Tenerife.

Editor's Comment
a non-diver might think this is a giant turtle judging by the diver but we know the scale is misleading due to wide angle lens perspective distortion

While diving off Corfu my dive buddy found this little octopus. The octopus decided to hitch a ride on his wrist, how surreal. I took this with a EOS 20d, format RAW, lighting single DS125 ikelite strobe on half power, 20mm prime canon lens f2.8 USM.
