I moved to Florida in 1966 from Pennsylvania to attend college. It was then I started diving from Dania Beach when the waters were gin clear with dense growth of corals that would scratch your skin if you got too close. I never got over how wonderful it was to swim with the fish of the sea while watching turtles and sharks swim by giving me a quick glance while on their route to some unknown destination. 

Through the years of diving I witnessed the decline of the coral reefs, but still every time I go in the water I find creatures I have never seen before. Taking a few moments to observe their behavior is to appreciate that all animal life has the same necessities for survival: clean water, food, sleep, multiply and survive. Digital photography has given me the opportunity to take endless still shots of incredible sea life that I will be able to keep forever.
