A hunting frogfish is always a nice encounter. The fleshy lure of the hairy frogfish makes it very recognizable. To get the lure as big as possible this shot was made with an Inon Macro Wide angle lens. Focus distance 0 cm.

They may not look like it, but Dragon Morays tend to be very shy and take some time to get close enough to achieve an uncluttered background. Canon 100mm L lens, F14, 1/125, ISO 100 (no crop)
