Tridacna, giant clams of the South Pacific, are luminous, fascinating creatures and seem to glow underwater.  I shot this macro image with a Nikonos V, 28mm lens, Aquatica extension tubes, and SB105 Speedlight.

"Small Fish in a Big Pond" was shot in Bonaire, Netherland Antilles, with a Nikonos V camera, SB105 Strobe, and a closeup kit. This tiny baby trunkfish looked like a little floating marble. My husband placed his hand in to show scale.

"Conch Eyes"
