Anacapa Island, CA. Harbor seals dove up and down the lanes of kelp while we photographed them, chewing on our flippers when they got close enough. I waited for a pair to come down between the rows when this one popped up from below. 60mm lens.

Moorea, French Polynesia. Blacktip sharks surrounded us just outside the wave break. We counted 30 in the photos after the dive. This is inside the circle, looking out at the divers before the lemon sharks cruised in. 18mm dual flash.
