A banded Butterfly fish stopped swimming to check out my port...I think she saw her reflection in there.
Lettuce Leaf Sea Slug - the blue/green coloring is so very beautiful
Reef Photo #5 shot in Curacao.
Reef on Curacao
Shot this image of some reef in curacao.
Spotted Anemone Cleaner Shrimp
Canon 7D - 100mm macro - +10 diopter
Bonaire
Startled (Peppermint) Goby
Sexy Shrimp peering out at me, as if to say "Peek a boo!"
Bearded Fireworm
Baby Drumfish
"I told you you should have trimmed your lawn, Neighbour!" (Secretary Blennies, Bonaire)
It took me quite a few tries to get a good image of this spinyhead blenny.
Juvenile trunkfish. Cute black and yellow marbles almost impossible to get in focus...at least for me.
This shot looks like a satellite orbiting a planet to me. Which is why I left the backscatter in, since it contributed to the feeling.
Christmas Tree Worms are my favorite subject. You have to be very stealthy to get in close to them. This is not cropped with only backscatter removed.
shortlistedShortlisted!
'From out of the dark...'
I spent some time waiting for this little speckled eel to come out far enough for a good image.
Tesselated Blenny (Hypsoblennius invemar)
I was working on trying to make his spots turn into bokeh. Managed it at 5.6
Moody Froggy
I love this little rough head blenny.
This Banded Butterflyfish just seemed love watching himself in my port.
This Christmas Tree Worm was a rather ugly brownish color when I first spotted it. But, when lit it because this beautiful red/white color and was breathtaking. This is without a dopter.
King of the Mountain
This honeycomb cowfish posed for me for quite a while...and followed me around, even when I wasn't shooting him. I was set up for macro, so I did the best I could with getting a portrait.
White christmas Tree worm from Bonaire taken in October. No diopter was used - this is with the Olympus m.zuiko 60mm macro lens only.
This very young (and small) goldentail eel was kind enough to pose for me in Bonaire on my last trip
I spent a lot of time the water this last trip, and this is a shot that I have had on my mind for about 2 years. I am proud to say I got it.No diopter, this is with the 60mm macro lens that Olympus makes.
I saw this shrimp and decided to try and shoot it, even though I had a gorgonian blowing in my face between my eyes and the LCD screen. It was fun working slowly and through the surge t get this image.
