Nude pose or pose nude?  Sunset dive when I saw this nudi on an elephant ear-like soft coral.  I don't have a strobe.  I used my flashlight for lighting.  Turned out good.  Added drama.  It seemed like it was art directed. One of those LUCKY shot.

This playful juvenile banded pipefish was swimming back and forth in front of my camera. I took a couple of shots but got frustrated for it was hard to focus.  Finally, I was able to focus on its head ;) Anilao, Mabini, Batangas

I saw this Ocellate Blue Ring on a sole of an inverted shoe. Looks like it was deep in concentration or praying. It never moved even when I was taking the shot. Canon G9, internal strobe only. Anilao, Batangas
