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.

Although not so rare, these Chinese Klipfish is not often spotted thanks to their excellent camouflage. This juvenile was luckily spotted on this singularly coloured sea fan.
