Hidden Doom. A small fish unknowingly drifts over a stargazer buried in the soft sediment bottom in Anilao Philippines. Stargazers are ambush predators that bury themselves in the sand and wait for unsuspecting prey to pass overhead. This image was taken at night with underwater lights that exposed the prey so I moved on not wanting to "cause" the predation.

Hello! A very curious and playful juvenile beluga whale investigates my camera in the Saguenay-St.Lawrence Marine Park near Tadoussac Quebec. These magnificent gentle creatures called the canaries in the sea burble, chirp and squeak creating a symphony of sound that makes you just stop and listen. If you are lucky they will swim up to you to share their story. Beluga whales are one of 13 species that call the St. Lawrence home and they are in trouble. Their numbers have plunged to below 1000 whales due to high infant mortality. Scientists are working feverishly to determine the cause. Photographed on assignment for @natgeo story the Generous Gulf.

A gallery of life on the Great Barrier Reef. The late largest most iconic coral reef system may be located in Queensland Australia but it really belongs to the world. When I was a kid the Great Barrier was the first reef on my radar of imagination. Today the worlds largest coral reef is literally in hot water. Sequential coral bleaching events in 2016 & 2017 have affected 900+ miles of the 1400 mile long structure. Thermal stress causes the coral polyp to lose its symbiotic algae that provide color and supplemental nutrients. Unprecedented back to back bleaching have left this great reef with little time to recover and struggling to survive. These images were photographed on assignment with @natgeo available at @natgeocreative natgeocreative #ocean #coralreef #greatbarrierreef #climatechange #followme for #moreocean @jenniferhayesig and @daviddoubilet
An American crocodile patrols the mangrove channels of Gardens of the Queen National Park Cuba. The crocodile rested on the seagrass covered bottom of the channel for minutes at a time and then rose slowly to take a breath of air and returned to the bottom to sleep again. Crocodiles are called the engineers of the mangroves because their movements create and maintain channels that enhance circulation of water and nutrients through the dense roots systems. Photographed on assignment for @natgeo Cubas Underwater Jewels in the Path of Tourism.

A moon jellyfish called Aurelia is the perfect home for a juvenile jack seeking protection from predators. I was working in the cool waters of Tasmania and swam into an aggregation of jellyfish. I looked long and hard for one or two that had resident jacks.
