"Turn on a Dime and give a nickel change" - One of my favorite places to go and watch the marine life is Stingray City, I also wanted to work with Natural light shooting, this is the result of my learning session.

Yellow Headed jawfish checking me out. I spent a bit of time slowly sneaking closer and closer to this fish's burrow...and was awarded with this shot.

This was my second attempt at the little critter. Did not fill the frame, but instead concentrated on sharpness of the image.

Another shot from the shore dive with Nina Baxa. She pointed this out, not much bigger than a pea, so I tried with my 60mm lens (no diopter) to fill the frame with the critter (so I could see what it was.)
