It was towards the end of the dive and I was heading back to shore when I spotted this beautiful yellow juvenile lionfish in mid water quite near the surface. For a lionfish, it was pretty friendly. At least for a while!

This "baby squid" was shot around HTMS Prab Wreck around Koh Tao, Gulf of Thailand. It's night dive around 8pm.
It's quiet a fast movement creature. You can also see the Inon strobe of my Instructure trying to shoot it as well wink

Wanted to get a near to front on shot of a Weedy Sea Dragon. After about thirty minutes I managed to get this. The position of the lights hit at just the right angle to highlight the beautiful colours of the body.
