Hawk fish that seems to be as curious about me as I am about it.
Shot was taken from Bolinao, Pangasinan Philippines. Camera used was Canon 40D with a 17-40mm f/4L lens.
Shot was made and taken in Bolinao, Pangasinan in the Philippines.
Hairy frog fish that tried to be unnoticed but failed with me.
Saw blade shrimp. A very interesting subject that are quite shy but rarely leaves when being photographed. I used to have difficulties in finding them, they seems to be seasonal in certain places.
A garden eel that caught my fancy. Took a lot of patience before I can come close enough to shoot it without spooking it out.
A moray eel that posted for me showing off it's pearly whites with contempt. I was actually out looking for nudibranch that I've yet to see.
I was inspired to shoot this pygmy as not only is it hard to find and to reach for, it's also quite difficult to photograph as well,
Out for a night dive to hunt for a good subject to photograph and this wonderful hermit crab seems to be volunteering.
Couple partially out of the hole to check out the "goodies" brought by my spotter or they are simply just infuriated with him.
A very pregnant ornate ghost pipe fish tummy showing off the kids.
An interesting subject that cares for its eggs on their mouth just up to the time they hatch then released into open waters.
