~ Its the Little Parts which Forms the Bigger Picture ~ Diving with shoals of fish is a dream past time of mine, but not so easy to capture a photo which is not just a photo of a school of fish. Having all the little ones form a much bigger fish.

A Dutoiti Dottyback (Pseudochromis dutoiti) . One of the benefits of using a 100mm macro lens instead of the shorter 60mm, one can take shots of the more skittish species too.

by Chris Pienaar
found thsi almost transparent littel fish in the weeds at the end of a dive on Rooneys, Sodwana. I initially thought it was a pipe fish but is was too small to see. Only when processing the pictures, could I see that it was a small trumpetfish.

by Chris Pienaar
I was recovering from a shooting a whip coral goby in a strenuous position when I saw this interaction just a bit above me. The Angelfish kept returning even when the wrasse was nipping it a bit painfully from time to time.
