The contrast between the Flamingo Tongue snail and the black sea rod attracted me, and the result is an almost luminous snail on the rod.
I was diving on Buddy'S Reef in Bonaire shooting with my Canon 5D MK II and Canon 1:28L IS ISM 100mm macro lens. This tiny Trunkfish was swimming around me, lips puckered as if ready to give me a kiss.
Green Turtle. It is very common to get close to sea turtles at the Salt Pier in Bonaire. At the end of almost each dive I can photograph a turtle, but lately are not seen very often and the sea bottom looks like a desert...something is changing?

Overunder image. A great Barracuda entered the frame while I was taking this overunder shot in Bonaire.
Overunder shot. Diver on a white sandy ocean floor.
Overunder shot. A green Iguana takes a breath after an underwater incursion in a semi-submerged cave on the island of Bonaire, Dutch Caribbean. Green Iguanas are everywhere on the island, they are part of every house's garden and...pools...

Overunder shot. A brown Caribbean Pelican is resting on its baits after a few strikes. Just once a year happens that a big ball of scads get close to the shores of Bonaire attracting many predators.
Taken during a trip in Curacao.
A Flamingo Tongue. Chichiriviche de La Costa, Venezuela.
