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!

Was shooting seven(!) of these ornate ghost pipes together in Anilao when this guy suddenly jumped. I worried that I had touched it, but then saw the small fish in its mouth! I managed to get this shot off before it began swallowing.

Juvenile Broadclub cuttlefish at Anilao.
You'll meet so many odd critters at night dives at Anilao, Phillippines. Doesn't he look just like a monk?
