We’re lucky to have many talented divers and ocean explorers sharing their close encounters with all sorts of marine life in exceptional portraits. Here’s a sample of some of them, from a cuttlefish up close to the speckled face of a perpetually frowning stonefish.

See, and share, more photos in the Awesome Underwater Scenes gallery and Underwater Fish Portraits group.
