BluRing - we were fortunate to find this blue ring octo as we were diving Giant Clams in Puerto Galera. Such an amazing sight and as you can tell - he was a bit upset with all the cameras. Oly Em1 with 12-50 set on 43 macro.

Mandarins - One of the most challenging experiences for me - to be able to see the Mandarin Fish, focus and get the shot before they darted away. What a fascinating ritual! Olympus OMD-EM1

Shooting B&W super macro is not often done and I love doing it. Finding the right subject on the right environment and shooting it was my only task. When I saw this hairy shrimp on the algae, I knew it was my opportunity.

I spent a bit of time trying to get this "face" shot of this rather small ornate ghost pipefish. I was happy with the result of the time spent.

Impressive close-up with wonderful colors and the perfect focus. What a cute little critter and a hard one to perfectly capture in a photo!

There was a large shoal of small red fish evading a whale shark by hiding beneath our boat in Honda Bay, Palawan. Sometimes they gathered around us to seek protection. When they did break free from the boat they followed the whale shark.
