Ride 'em cowboy!

Spotted cleaner shrimp on a giant anemone. While a photo freezes motion, this shrimp indeed looked like it was riding a bronco with the arm of the anemone swaying back and forth in the current.

Salt works on Bonaire, Netherlands Antilles

Buy this photo on Getty Images : Getty Images

Much of Bonaire's Southern half has been made into a giant system of ponds and pools which take seawater and allow incrimental evaporation of the water until the only remaining product is sea salt. Bonaire's solar salt works produces 400,000 tons of industrial grade salt per year primarily using wind to operate windmill-driven pumps and gates and the sun to evaporate the collected seawater.

Turtle castle

Found this green turtle scratching his shell on this coral head while on a drift dive from Something Special to Eden Beach. The turtle was so enjoying the scratch that it didn't cared that I slowly approached. At the time I took the shot, I was inches away from the turtle (the effect of a fisheye lens). At that point the turtle decided that I was getting a bit too comfortable, so it turned to move on. I was able to get this shot as it twisted towards me just before it left its coral head.

Blue whiptail lizard, Bonaire

Only the males have this bright color: females are smaller and drabber.




Spotted lobster, Bonaire

Off the Sand Dollar Condos, where I stayed on Bonaire. These seemed unusually abundant where I snorkeled in Bonaire and were more common than the usual Caribbean spiny lobster.




Palometa, Bonaire

Off the small island of Klein Bonaire. These fish are in the jack family and are related to pompano.




French angelfish, Bonaire
