Jaro and Leela
Clown fish in anemone. The anemone is stings its prey - the clown fish is somehow immune, and gets the protection of the anemone. The anemone grow in the midst of the knobby coral.

A file fish in motion - looking for some coral to hide in.
Not shy up close either - but a bit out of frame.

Needle Fish - closer
Another Mary find - he wasn't too happy when I got up close. Come to think of it, neither was Mary.

Divers in the water
Jaro and Meagan begin the dive
Cod Feed - red bass snappers are at the top. Enlarge the photo and you'll see their teeth. I'm shooting the 10mm in a flat port - hence the chiaroscuro effect.
A nice puffer from a far.
Frog fish sitting a top the coral. If the French folks had moved I could have gotten more of his face.
Stew on the hunt
Jaro and the really big grouper
