Crossways   Tarpon hunting Silversides. This is an image I ve been striving for  for over a year now   learning and working on my lighting skills so that when the Silversides returned to Cayman  I could finally get this photograph.

message Fantastic shot Tony!

How'd you get this? ... did you balance on one hand and shoot with the other?

message Thanks Suzan, It was actually very easy. I just steadied the camera with both hands directly over the Christmas Tree Worm, composed, and fired off like 5 or 6 shots until I was happy with the lighting etc. The Christmas tree worm was near the seafloor on a coral mound so I just kneeled on the coral rubble in front of it. I think the VR version of the Nikkor 105 helps to compose for these types of photos.
