Tarpon entering grotto at dawn

During daytime silversides hide in caverns, swim-throughs, grottos and wrecks. As dawn settles the predators follow them.

The girl in the picture is my firstborn and she saw the light:-) more than 14 years ago under water...I guess this makes this image predestined!

On precious planet Earth, change is needed. Sometimes people are driven by fear or greed and that causes damage to the balance. One victim is the species sharks, the cruel act of finning decimated numbers by 70%, they deserve respect & protection.

Hard to digest!

Visiting the Oceanic Whitetips in the big blue of Cat Island is a very humble experience. Loved every minute of it and 'Epic Diving' (Vincent & Debra Canabal) make it happen with a lot of respect for the animals!
