Underwater Photo Contest | Macro - not swimming

Smaller subjects typically 1 to 3 inches (2.5 to 7.5cm) shot on macro settings or with macro equipment that are NOT MOVING usually on the bottom (i.e. between 1:1 and 1:3)
this was taken in November in Bonaire...I thought the pattern on this Cyphoma gibbosum was quite unusual...and the contrast to the lavender rope sponge it was on was t me, the best.

"Triple Play" - Three Juvenile Frogfish
NOTE: The fish were not touched in anyway to accomplish this shot. The black and orange were in situ. The brown was 1/2" out of frame and was gently urged with a probe touching only the sand.
