Beautiful and clear shot, Beverly. The waters off the Caymans are great for this type of photography. I just wish I had the chance to return there myself to take pictures like yours.

Thank you Rosanne. It was taken at Sunset House in Grand Cayman. I've been revisiting my Cayman photos. Grand Cayman was devastated by Ivan. Seems the entire Caribbean is taking a beating from hurricanes. #800123

along with Florida...he looks like a deer caught in the headlights #800223

Beverly J. Speed September 23, 2004

LOL...he does sort of look like that, Cathy. Those yellow-tail jacks are used to being hand-fed, so they are quite a nuisance at times...with very sharp teeth. Hope your property didn't get much abuse from the storms. #800268

Your image is so peaceful, makes me wish I was this fish, alone in my thoughts and quiet and in a beautiful place. Maybe it isn't quite all like that in the waters, for a fish - but its definitely inviting. Let me just go get my fish dress on....... ;) #800700

Beverly J. Speed September 23, 2004 many thanks because you've responded to a number of my photos, and I appreciate your letting me know your thoughts.

Murtaza...the ocean is so very much alive, and my biggest hope is that through my photography I might share some of the marine life we humans are risking through ignorance and greed. It's my greatest passion in life. #800809

Donna La Mattino Pagakis September 23, 2004

Great image, love the lighting of the water and the fish is beautiful. Well done Beverly!! #801186

:) Just saw your gallery pics. The one titled: Swimming Hawksbill is my favourite!:)) Your greatest passion is a great passion!:) #802959

Beverly J. Speed September 24, 2004

Murtaza thanks so much for your positive feedback. I now have to go back and see which one was the Swimming Hawksbill . You wouldn't believe the slides I have yet to cull. #803052
