I know, clowns are the most overdone subjects but we need to ackowledge them very now and then and hell, they are cute!
I hope this works as a CFWA if not please move to correct category. This is my beautiful wife snorkeling with a pair of Clown fish on Qamea reef in Fiji. This trip was my first experience taking pictures while snorkeling.

Hammer Heads every place you look. The schooling Hammer Heads of the Galapagos Islands were a incredible site to behold. This pic doesn't do it justice. There are 150+ Hammer Head sharks schooling by us. It was GREAT!!!
This is a good example of the size of a whale shark. With my dive swimming right next to the sharks tail.
