Took this while visiting a new dive site! The site is known for its unique wall structure, my buddy spotted this one for me as it was on the ledge of the wall that I can easily get a head shot while removing background to really pop the subject!

Dirona albolineata - I shot this very carefully by waiting for the moment and positioning myself in order to capture the beauty of their cerata! Using sea weed as background also helped to pop the subject

This shot was taken using big aperture for nice bokeh effect. This sea lemon was crawling on bunch of barnacles, it was relatively shallow compare to the rest of the dive, so there was good amount of natural light for the background color!
