I was shooting for brooding cardinal fish when I noticed this cute blenny peeking out from its hole on a rock coral.
I found this Armina nudibranch crawling on the sand soon as we descended for a dive in Anilao. I had enough time to get the shot that I wanted.

Stare Off. This lionfish paused to hover and posed for the camera and I took advantage to get the shot.
I was watching a group of Cardinal fish and noticed that some of them were brooding eggs in their mouth and waited for this one to face my camera for the shot that I wanted.
