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.

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.
