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.

I was recovering from a shooting a whip coral goby in a strenuous position when I saw this interaction just a bit above me. The Angelfish kept returning even when the wrasse was nipping it a bit painfully from time to time.
