I took a very rare photo of a blanket octopus. These are nearly impossible to find as they mainly stay in the gulfstream.  This was in about 30 feet of water off Key Largo.

We discovered a rare blanket octopus on Molasses Reef in Key Largo. This is one of about a dozen photos I took of this rare creature. This is the blanket octopus in it's closed position.

Sea Turtle at 80 feet.  We were at about 80 feet when this turtle approached us and swam along side us for a couple minutes. It seemed he was curious about us.

This Queen Angel fish was found off Miami Beach in about 40 feet of water. One of my favorite marine fish, the colors are striking and one of my favorites to photograph.

Sea Turtle.  I had a close encounter with several sea turtles at Molasses Reef in Key Largo. I used a sealife dc1000 elite for this photo.
