I waited and waited and then this little gem almost swam into my port. There is a small amount of cropping on this photo. I particularly like her fin on the left side of the photo - what beauty!!

Actually a tough Super Macro Swimming shot! A very rare Juvenile Diamond Filefish (3.5-4mm) which with patience stopped and gave me this amazing full frame shot. Olympus E-M1 with 60mm +SMC Twin Inon Z240s.
