These pictures were captured in January 2013 in Bonaire during a trip with Lancaster Scuba Center. Bonaire remains a favorite destination for photographing various subjects. This year I was pleased to find a yellow frogfish. Observing the fish for over 20 minutes allowed me to capture an impressive yawn. Each year I return, I am impressed by the sponge growth on the Hilma Hooker. Finding cryptic teardrop crabs on sponges at nightime was a new subject as well. Mantas were seen every day by many from the group. Unfortunately they seemed to be elusive to my lens.
