Here are some of my favorite water images from Tranquility Bay. Most of these were taken within 50' of shore or the dock.
Small yellow stingray in a few feet of water (5-6" across)
Lesser electric ray
Queen conchs - I love their eyes (bottom of the 1st photo, seemingly looking in 2 directions)
This 1 looks more like a princess conch
I saw this beautiful scrawled file fish in the same location many times. The brown coral on the left and the purple coral are the same species; the colony on the left is feeding.
The coolest thing about blue tangs is that they're solid bright yellow as juveniles; this 1 is hanging out with 2 little sharp nosed puffers and a juvenile wrasse.
This is a sub adult blue tang making the change to blue.
Small conch on a stroll
Another treasure - juvenile yellow-tailed damsels, like sparks off a campfire against a night sky; they're not nearly as beautiful as adults. The larger 1 was about 2" long and it's tail was starting to turn.
Trumpet fish, vertical near the left, with a grunt looking on
There were dozens of roughly parallel canyons of sand between coral outcroppings. That's a school of creole wrasse swimming by.
Huge green moray eels
Queen trigger fish at the bottom, black durgons in the background; queen triggers are beautiful but the colors don't show well on a photo at 85 feet. Click >here< for photos on the web.here< for more information.
1 of my favorite things in the whole world to see, a juvenile spotted drum - like a dancing ribbon with a stripy body attached.
My very favorite thing to find at depth - myself. :-)
Our last afternoon Mike and I kayaked out to the cut in the reef and were rewarded with sightings of huge barracuda, tarpon, southern stingrays, and a hawksbill turtle.
It's hard to 'say cheese' underwater but I think Mike pulled it off. :-)
