Undersea Photography by Marina

Over the past six years or so, I have taken my trusty underwater camera into the Atlantic, the Pacific, and the Caribbean -- everywhere from Key West to Monterey to the Cayman Islands to Papua, New Guinea. Showing no restraint whatsoever, I have photographed any critter that would hold still long enough. Unfortunately, most of them don't (hold still, that is). Still, every now and then I get lucky.

Here are another couple of shots I took in Rarotonga this summer. The first is a pair of Ornate Butterflyfish. The second I have tenatively identified as a Coral Grouper, but I could be wrong about this. The photo in my fishy reference guide matched the shape but not the color, but I know some groupers change color. If anyone can make a more accurate ID, please let me know.
