Seahorse with Backlighting. Finally found one in the right position in the right surroundings for this type of shot, unfortunately alot of sediment in the water, so had to remove a fair amount of backscatter after the dive.

Painted frogfish perched for a days hunting. I'm always looking for red or yellow things to take photos of. Very pleased with this frogfish's choice of spot. S-95 and Inon Strobe.

I only got one shot of this Banded Boxer Shrimp with eggs. Original photo showed both claws (just) but i think this crop brings out the egss and the hairy arms slightly better. S-95 plus stacked 165's.

This Flamboyant Cuttlefish was not very flamboyant so I decided to get creative with lighting.
