This shot was taken during this years annual sardine migration. I had removed my strobes due to the backscatter and forgot to add weight, i was sat on the surface whilst my friends were seeing an awesome ball below, i was lucky to nail this shot.

I was recovering from a shooting a whip coral goby in a strenuous position when I saw this interaction just a bit above me. The Angelfish kept returning even when the wrasse was nipping it a bit painfully from time to time.

Facial- I needed a yellow mouthed eel to replace a bungled shot in my portfolio for the Sodwana Shootout 2015 on the last day. Found this one with two minutes dive time left

found thsi almost transparent littel fish in the weeds at the end of a dive on Rooneys, Sodwana. I initially thought it was a pipe fish but is was too small to see. Only when processing the pictures, could I see that it was a small trumpetfish.

A Dutoiti Dottyback (Pseudochromis dutoiti) . One of the benefits of using a 100mm macro lens instead of the shorter 60mm, one can take shots of the more skittish species too.
