These pictures were taken in December 2004 while on the dive boat Nekton Rorqual. Our route took us out of Mayaguez
to Deschecho, Mona and Monito islands.

All photos were taken with a Nikon D-70 digital camera, Nikon 16mm, 20mm and 105mm lenses and a Tamron
28-200mm lens. Underwater light was provided by two Sea & Sea YS-120 strobes.
