The start of many pictures taken on a dive trip to Bonaire.

I'll start by saying that I'm not much of an author, but I do thoroughly enjoy taking photographs during my various aquatic adventures. Hopefully the following photos help to show what an amazing world lives beneath the water's surface. Most pictures have been slightly filtered in an attempt to clean them up and present them in the way they look when you're under.

I believe this one would be a "Typical Octopus". Somewhat skittish, they generally try to evade you. Possibly using some type of ancient alien technology, they appear to change their patterns to blend into their surroundings.

This was in my opinion a beautiful example of a "Fuffer Fish". Floating effortlessly, it seemed relatively apathetic in regard to my curiosity.

Your typical "Lion-Fish". Beautiful, deadly, destructive. They have wreaked havoc on local ecosystems, divers being their primary predator. You can usually find them hiding between rock crevices, and in the deeper areas that most divers don't explore.

I believe this is just an example of "Fan Coral". You'll find them gently swaying in the current. Maybe not as exciting as an Eagle Ray, or a Whale Shark, they're magnificent none the less.

I'm not entirely sure on this grumpy looking guy, though I found many, all equally grumpy. I believe it is a "Black Grouper". Please feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.
