On a visit to Little Cayman, we've met a lovely couple, diving for years, but no pictures of them under water. They both loved the superb marine wildlife in Cayman especially the Nassau grouper. This fish, like most fish, lives in cleaner symbiosis with cleaner fish & shrimps. But in Little Cayman they bump up to you, so you can rub them and they get a good scratch. Since I had my camera with me I tried to get some shots of them together...and at our safety stop this Nassau Grouper came for a rub. The joy after this encounter and the fact I shot the lady under water...I wanted to share!

Location: Little Cayman, Southern Cross, Cayman Islands
