A beautiful invader.  We dived in Turks 3 years ago and didn't see one lion fish.  This year we saw them on every dive.

On a great drift dive, this beautiful turtle didn't seem at all leary of divers. Just doing his thing in Cozumel.

A very focused diver slowly ascending from the depths. He appears to have been on some sort of secret ops mission.

Whoa! Where did that come from? Very friendly and curious hawksbill sea turtle joined our dive group for several minutes before swimming away.

French angelfish are not skittish, but it's unusual for them to approach a diver spontaneously like this friendly couple did.

Fish for dinner again? The shark feeders had just opened the bait box, and all the sharks in the area except this one rushed in to see what was on the menu.

Hard to get a good shot of the very playful sea lions in the Galapagos. They zip by at lightning speed. While I was snorkeling, this one circled several times, upside down. Locked onto his face and panned the camera with him to get this shot.

A smiling Galapagos sea lion in his natural habitat - a park bench. I wanted to give this cute little guy some money, but he'd probably just spend it on alcohol.
