<p>Set within a mosaic of granular scales, an ancient eye that is as alien to us as it is familial. The ubiquity of the eye which stares right back at us, perhaps in reproach, perhaps in basic curiousity, should remind us how closely related we are to all creatures, including this billion year old species that nature invented to manage the oceans as an apex predator.

Radar Reef is a secluded seldom visited dive site at the north shore of Cayman Brac. There is a boat mooring but not many dive shops make it this far. Radar Reef is best reached from the jetty near Stake Bay's famous museum. It is a shallow dive site reached by gearing up and going down the 'sometimes slippery' staircase next to the jetty. A bit east of the jetty's end lays a large telephone cable that will bring you right onto Radar Reef.

A night dive is great here as the rocks next to the boat pier and the cable wires are a haven for arrow crabs, spiny lobsters and coral shrimps. Silversides are always present in groups, and be careful for the sea wasp, a jelly which is interesting to look at but can have a nasty sting. The sea fans are often filled with flamingo tongues, which is one of the species that make Radar Reef a macro photographers dream. Juvenile fish, angelfish, puffers are some other creatures often spotted.
