I shoot this picture in the spanish natural reserve "Islas Medas". It's one of the famous big fella of the Mediterranean sea, the Brown grouper.
Photo takes with my compact LUMIX FX-01 around 25 meters depth.

"Tarpon Undercarriage": Photographed at Macabuca/Turtle Farm on Grand Cayman. I hovered in front and below the "Tarpon Cave" where they hang out during the day. Lying close to the sandy bottom I shot up against the blue and coral.

This was my second attempt at the little critter. Did not fill the frame, but instead concentrated on sharpness of the image.

Another shot from the shore dive with Nina Baxa. She pointed this out, not much bigger than a pea, so I tried with my 60mm lens (no diopter) to fill the frame with the critter (so I could see what it was.)
